‘Further Down the Tree Line’ by Gerald Macfly

If it’s possible to hear the early morning quiet on a crisp winter day, I do as I view Gerald Macfly’s photo ‘Further Down the Tree Line’. Macfly submitted the photo to the Winter Quiet Assignment, which is open until midnight PST today.

“On a chilly quiet morning near Mount Fuji, before sunrise. The pond is half frozen but still providing a nice reflection of Mount Fuji, with the trees on both sides giving a guiding impression towards the center. The pond is part of a camp site and this early, it was extremely quiet. The only sound was the one from the shutter capturing this beautiful sunrise,” describes Macfly.
