Winter still life #2

Serving twice: Twigs and leaves form geometric patterns above and below the frozen surface of a small creek. Conduits of nourishment for the trees along the bank when the weather was warm and the land was green, they will decay and provide nourishment for the roots of those same trees when they are released from the icy grasp which holds them fast.
