Trees are always beautiful when they are bare, and its easy to see how different theier forms are according to their species. The one on the left is a Horse Chestnut, while the one on the right is an Ash.
And this is an Oak against a snowy park.
Rather to the horror of Mr. G I had our privet hedge cut right back. Naturally, being privet, it grey back very quickly and made a much better hedge, but it was rather bare for a few months, except when it wore snow caps!
This is one of our local reservoirs in 2013, when the lack of rain over several months had left the biggest expanse of bare earth and rock that we had ever seen.
And this I snapped at a flea market at Leek, in Staffs. I think that could be called bare!
Hope you enjoyed these - do leave a comment if you called, I love reading them!
