It’s a little depressing around here at the moment. Usually by this time we have a fair bit of snow. I’m not all that fond of snow but it does at least make the place look picturesque. At the moment there are just a lot of bare trees. I was therefore surprised to find that one of our neighbors had hung this candy cane on a tree adding a splash of color to the otherwise monochromatic scenery. With the camera I had with me I wasn’t able to blur the background as much as I would have liked and the twigs and branches are more than a little distracting. The fact that you can see them does, however, emphasize the contrast between them and the bright colors of the candy cane.
