This is one of my favorite snapshots of the Holland State Park along the shoreline of Lake Michigan.  It was taken just before winter settled in for good several years ago.  The haunting whimsical beauty of the trees as they await the snow cover arrests me.  This beauty is barren, vulnerable, stripped, unadorned and yet magnificent in its’ stark simplicity.
