I can’t decide if this tree looks scaly or fluffy. Or possibly feathery. Perhaps it’s a mixture of all three – the tree has fluffy, feathery scales.
Whatever the case may be, it certainly is an intriguing texture. I’m sure you can understand why I couldn’t resist photographing it!
It’s really interesting how the snow catches and holds in all the little nooks and crannies. Bark certainly doesn’t look smooth usually (well, I suppose it depends on the tree) but they don’t tend to look as textured as the snow implies.
I thought it was pretty.
