I often walk the grounds of the Iowa Arboretum looking for interesting pictures to capture with the camera lens. Several days ago there was a mist in the air that froze and formed ice crystals on plants and structures. Nature at its best.
The first major storm blanketed the Arboretum with a fresh carpet of snow. A short walk reveals many wonderful gifts of nature. The oak leaf remains as a single soldier in the morning sun. The apple tree holds onto its shadow and fruit. The winter waves in the snow provide a glimpse of the power of wind.
One of the best places to see trees and their fall colors is the Iowa Arboretum.
