pine pom-pon pick up stix

On a recent weekend trip to Ithaca, New York (home to Lake Cayuga and Willard Straight Hall), I took a few snaps of these wonderful prickly pine explosions. I like the high contrast of pattern against the stark white morning sky. Have a look at some other (large-scale) versions right here at beautimuse.

oh wow. small world. I was in Ithaca yesterday. I've been photographing Seneca lake like non-stop. I just adore the finger lakes region.

How original. I love this kind of photos where the artist sees beyond the most simple of things in nature and there unpredictably you have a work of art. Enjoying your blog.
