Winter Colors

I was so lucky to have been invited to spend a weekend with friends in the Catskills, NY. We went for a walk and I looked for for critters and treasures. No critters (well, I did see some little kinglets) but many treasures...

:: red lichen blossoms ::

:: golds and reds ::

:: layers of mushrooms and lichens ::

:: who lives here? ::

:: hello, bright little mushroom ::

:: shards of ice ::

I think winter is my favorite season.
