Bare - Thematic Photography

The rain has stopped at last and cold weather has arrived, it's not the climate for stripping off.

However some shrubs even look good when denuded.

At this time of year before next year's crop gets established a field may be bare but it's far from barren.

Bare barbed wire protects the 'mud'
However appearances may be deceptive like this footpath in the winter sun.

It's black ice that shines and catches you unawares

Even bare boards boast a little decoration in a garden fence.

Perhaps this sunbather should have invested in a fig leaf rather larger than the ivy intruding through the boards.

That brings me to the bare end.

Hi Bob - yes Bill has a salient point! Loved the other photos ... and now we'll see what Spring does when it comes, if we have that cold spell they're threatening.

Our bare trees are sprouting, the daffs have pushed through .. the snowdrops are sending shoots up the roadside banks ... the bare redwood is wonderful to see ... cheers Hilary

I like that Redwood! And that muddy field looks like our garden! As for the last one, what happens when someone shouts "SHARK"! ?

Nice photos of winter's bare scenery, the redwood is especially pretty and then the last photo, sort of gave me a thrill!

Black ice got my dad's SUV. (One of 'em, that is...he typed sadly.)

Lovely shots, Bob. Of course I have nothing to say about the end.

Oh my, might have to unsee the last photo, hehehe.. or not! I have to say though, your other shots for bare are perfect, but oh so lovely in spots/parts of each one! Great post, Bob.
