Subtle contrasts

This stand of poplar trees is located at Split Rock Lighthouse State Park in Minnesota. I was taken by the contrast of the green foliage against the white bark of the trees.

Something I just noticed as I was preparing to post this photo is the graffiti on the foremost tree. About three quarters of the way up, a heart with two sets of initials has been carved into the bark.

I wonder if the two people represented by the initials are still together. At the very least, the trees are standing the test of time.
