Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “brown”. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

I wrote a post with a brown theme just a few weeks ago so I thought I’d use some new photos for this post today. Here are some photos I took today and last weekend to illustrate this theme. Trees are mainly what came to mind, like these many brown leaves that fell off a Ginkgo tree.

I’m not sure what type of tree this is but I was fascinated by its reddish brown bark, as well as the many twists displayed on the tree trunk.

Talking about interesting tree bark, this are the branches of a cork oak tree. This is what we use to make wine bottle corks, cork flooring, cork wall boards, etc. Pretty cool looking, huh?

I snapped a photo of this cute brown mallard female duck today, as she was snacking on some underwater plants. Nature sure knows how to add interesting patterns to brown to make it beautiful.
