Painterly photos #2: Birch trees, Egg Harbor

This photograph is the second of a number of photos I took this past weekend in Door County, Wisconsin, in an attempt to capture landscapes as a painter might approach them.

This stand of birch trees is located on County Highway E just before you enter the village of Egg Harbor. On the far right edge of this photo at the horizon line, the road crests a hill and treats you to a panoramic view of the village and Green Bay beyond it.

A light snow had fallen a few days before - the first taste of winter in northern Wisconsin. By early afternoon, the snow would be melted away, leaving the landscape to await the next offering of the winter skies.
