Forest of Birch Trees

Mikawoz Forest of Birch Trees

Forest of Birch Trees

These are beautiful birch trees found in the forests of Elk Island Provincial Park near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “Birches have spiritual importance in several religions, both modern and historical. In Celtic cultures, the birch symbolizes growth, renewal, stability, initiation, and adaptability because it is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions with casual indifference.”

In Between

The Canada Goose is between two tree trunks. He is heading towards the water. In the background, you can see another goose rising up out of the green algae water.

It was taken at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and as the geese are back now, it will be a common sight again.

Woe is Me!

Woe Is Me

This is actually a white-handed gibbon. I made the image black and white and then added a brownish hue to it. He looks a bit sullen to me and so that it is why I called it “Woe is Me!”

According to National Geographic, “White-handed gibbons are small tailless apes with soft, thick fur. They live in trees and li ke to stay high up in the canopy of trees. Their very long arms allow them to swing effortlessly among the tree branches. They can also change direction in a split second, and can catch birds in midair and eat them after landing.”

Upward Growth

Upward Growth

I love the way the ivy is crawling and creeping up this tree. I love the way it has tendrils that move up at its own pace. It is growing upwards and onwards to heaven above and the sun and the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “On level ground they remain creeping, not exceeding 5–20 cm height, but on suitable surfaces for climbing, including trees, natural rock outcrops or man-made structures such as quarry rock faces or built masonry and wooden structures, they can climb to at least 30 m above the ground.”

Dragonfly on Tree

Dragonfly On Tree

This is a beautiful dragonfly on a birch tree. I love dragonflies because they are beautiful as they hover and fly around and they eat mosquitoes too.

According to Wikipedia, “Fossils of very large dragonfly ancestors in the Protodonata are found from 325 million years ago (Mya) in Upper Carboniferous rocks; these had wingspans up to about 750 mm (30 in). There are about 3,000 extant species. Most are tropical, with fewer species in temperate regions. Loss of wetland habitat threatens dragonfly populations around the world.”

Roots of Strength

Roots Of Strength

I took this photo because I loved the way the tree has insisted to grow despite being pushed by the forces of nature. It’s exposed roots show how it can compensate to continue to grow and sustain nutrients from the ground. To me, the roots look like arms reaching into the Earth.

Red Wheels

I was on the West Coast when I came across these two red wheels up against the fence line. I love the circular wheels being so red and bright. I like the leaves on the ground as it was a good fall day and I love the way the angles work.

By the Ridge

Looking through some green tree boughs, I see the beautiful Grand Canyon snaking itself along. The Earth formations are incredible. I like the contrast between the red rock and the greenery.

I hope you like it too. Check out my other creative imagery at this website.

It is as if the clouds are dancing or brilliant white fireworks are going off in the sky. I love the movement in the clouds.
