Sugar Frosted Mountains 2006

This view often greets us in the morning. The maple trees on Sugar Mountain are frosted in a light coating of ice. This contrasts with the darker gray and brown of the unfrosted trees at the lower altitudes. In this photo it is particularly striking by being set against the rich blue of the morning sky. By mid-afternoon the frosting usually sublimates off the tree branches.

  1. How beautiful! I miss the snow!

    Do you tap the maples on the photos to get syrup?

    Very nice contrasts in this shot.

  3. Those particular ones along the stone wall we have never tapped. Our sugar bush is the mountain in the background where we have abotu 4,000 taps.
