Broken Birch 1

Today it made it up to 45F (7C), with sun in the morning, but in the late afternoon as the temperature started to drop and the wind came up, we received rain, which changed to ice pellets, then snow before clearing just long enough to be able to see the sun set.

I went out in the morning to run a few errands and on the way home along one of the back roads and I stopped and did this little drawing of some birch trees.

They were at the edge of the road with a water filled ditch before them.

I moved the birch trees to the foreground and changed the ditch into a creek and added some smaller trees.

The nice thing was that I returned home before the weather changed and was able to enjoy the sunset.
