Tuesdays of Texture – “Silver Birch – Close Up”

“Silver Birch - Close Up”

“Beautiful is he who recognizes what is truly beautiful,
Even if the surface is ugly.
Truthful is he who says what is true,
Even if the truth is ugly.
Ugly is he who measures beauty by its exterior,
Without first weighing the interior.
And ugly is the man who judges harshly what he sees looking out,
Without first judging what he sees in the mirror
– Suzy Kassem

How often I pass by the trees along the way, briefly admiring the varieties and texture. Every now and then, I try to document them through my photos. This silver birch had a certain appeal for me, with its colours and curled bark, such wonderful details. I thought it to be a good submission for this week’s Tuesdays of Texture. It was this or more ice, which is plentiful, with more on the way 😦
