P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #51

Snow in December---that hasn't always been the case these last several years.  Our first snow was much heavier in the mountains, which we want.  That's our water source during the warm months. Last summer was extremely dry and extremely hot.  Just 6 or so miles from the edge of town, winter is in full force this year.  I took a drive to photograph some of the scenery, snow-laden trees that seem gigantic compared to a logging truck. (The rust color in the background is the sign of trees killed in an August wildfire that burned 2000 acres in this area.)   Joining with Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday, where there's only one week remaining in the challenge and only one more photo to make up my annual photo book.

Great capture, Evelyn. So dwarfed, it really does look like a toy truck. And I love your header!
I hope you and all your family have a wonderful Christmas.
I'm so glad we met, so glad to call you friend. ♥

The sense of scale is amazing... did you wait for a bright red truck to come along. The color really pops!
