So Many Hickories, So Little Time

CaryaAnd such small teeth.

Sunset Park Elm


No Filter But The Leaves

Quercus albaThe sun is behind the brown and purple leaves of this White Oak, making some magic.

Metasequoia Cone

Metasequoia glyptostroboidesCone of the Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides), which is more rectangular than the ball-shaped fruit of the similar looking tree, the Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum). I bought one of the Baldy fruits home to photograph, too, but it fell into its constituent pieces in my bag, each heady with resin. They are put together like 3-D jigsaw puzzles, while these Metasequoia cones open up like this (also in my bag) to release their seeds. Eventually, it will dry to a nice brown color.
