Time For Renewal

While driving through LeRoy Oakes Forest Preserve in St. Charles, I spotted a young tree among the snow.

After taking a few "wintry" photos, I moved on to find people enjoying the fresh powder. But I especially loved the simplicity of this small tree among the forest, with geese flying overhead.

I am going to try and document this tree throughout the year, showing the progression of the seasons. There's nothing like Midwest seasons and what they mean – a time for renewal.
