... from the cottage.
I had all but forgotten these photos until I made the previous post and realized that I already uploaded these photos in draft mode. These pictures were taken from just outside the side door. The door faces east, but I was looking south in these photos that were taken when the sun was lowering in the west.
I am not an expert on trees, but I think my BIL, who is very knowledgeable, has identified these as red pines. It makes sense, doesn't it, when you look at their colour in this photo? These are the same trees, or close enough, as the ones that you see the lower portions of in the above photo. The light was catching the upper reaches rather wonderfully.
