A pine line

This morning the sky is clear and I can see Jupiter setting in the western sky. The temperature is just below freezing as it often is when the night sky is cloudless. We're expecting the chill to continue through the week, and that's a good thing. Normal winter weather. I'm glad to have a good supply of firewood. There's no snow in the forecast for us, however.

The setting sun lit up this row of trees on Sunday afternoon.

This row of pine trees borders a vineyard parcel just east of our house. It's the place where the land drops into the river valley. On this side you can see grape vines, on the other, there's a steep wooded slope.

    1. john, if you click on "our house" in the categories section (in the side bar), you'll find a bunch of photos of the house, inside and out. You will have to click on "older posts" at the bottom of each screen to get the next batch.

  5. Are there any ancient trees in your area? Trees going back centuries?

    1. michael, probably not. These forests have been managed for centuries.
