I really like the way you've composed this picture Steffe! the birdhouse looks so small against the very tall trees! Have a great weekend.

Love it Steffe!

Are there dead birds in the bird-house?

Steffe said...

Because it has been used as a pet cemetery for something like forty years. So that's what most of the locals call it.

Ha ha, that is a very good question Julie.

I think birch trees are one reason so many Swedes settled in Minnesota when they came to this country!

They are my favorite tree, I think!

Down right artsy!
God helg, Steffe Meister

En bild helt i min smak. Gillar även dina porträtt och att du valt att fotografera folk i ditt område. Kul idé och väl genomfört.
