Oriental

Here's a nice minimalist image made possible by the recent snowfall.

This strange tree lives outside our house and produces strings of these single bladed winged seeds. They stay there all winter and most of the next year for that matter. At this season they are quite visible as the new leaves have not yet appeared. 

I've never had a decent picture of them because the fussy background would ruin the shot.



Here, the undisturbed snow has created a nice clean backdrop and a cool counterpoint for the warm colours of the seeds.
