Win­ter pine tree in­spires

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Ed Helmick

Dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber, our thoughts turn to­ward Christ­mas. Many of us ven­ture into the for­est in search of an ev­er­green conifer as­so­ci­ated with the cel­e­bra­tion of Christ­mas.

A few years back, I was making a morn­ing drive on a lo­cal moun­tain road when I came around a curve and was blessed with a view of a won­der­ful tree. The fresh snow was cling­ing to branches and the morn­ing sun pro­vided back light­ing to ac­cent the tree in a golden glow. I got out the cam­era to cap­ture the spe­cial mo­ment. I knew as the sun rose in the sky the im­age would be­come less dra­matic and the magic mo­ment would shortly be gone.

The pic­ture of this mag­nif­i­cent mo­ment has al­ways been one of my fa­vorite pho­to­graphs and it is a plea­sure to share it with the read­ers of Serve Daily.
