Seasonal Overlap   Blairs Loch, Moray, Scotland

Early wet snow clings to the branches and left over russet brown leaves of a Beech tree that refuses to shed its Autumnal gown.  This is a common phenomenom with beech trees a process known as marcessence.  The leaves can make it all the way through to next Spring even during the winter gales.  Photographically it does add a wonderful dash of warmth to the cold blue shadows and monochromatic white of fresh snow.
