Unfolding the Wings of Winter - I had to wait so long for the first snow in Northern Bavaria but it came over night. Not so much but enough to go out early to park "Schönbusch". Still playing with the XT-1 and I just can say, if you are looking for something new, take this camera, add the 23mm f/1.4 and you will be a happy photographer.
The Witch Tree is an ancient Thuja occidentalis growing on the shore of Lake Superior near Grand Marais. The tree is held sacred by the Ojibwe, who traditionally leave offerings of tobacco to ensure a safe journey on Lake Superior. Due to its sacred nature and vandalism problems in the past, the tree is considered off limits to visitors unless accompanied by a local Ojibwe band member.
