The Twenty-thirteen Tree

Added on by Jan Armor.

My first 2013 pictures were of a row of winter trees in a snowy cornfield in Matunuck, Rhode Island. I've passed this place many times, even stopped once or twice to take pictures of the walls on the way to Mantunuck Beach or the Ocean Mist. The stone walls here are made of large stones, quite different then the flat ones of Aquidneck Island, or the smaller ones elsewhere roundabout the state. It must have been quite a chore to clear the fields of these boulders. The rocks are piled on top of one another, rather than fitted like many others in the state. These are rugged walls. The light passing through the gaps make eye catching patterns up and down the run. The trees lean right up against the walls, stark and irregular against the winter sky.
