Bent



This poor tree is just old and tired. As many times as I have walked on this path I did not notice this until this past weekend. Maybe I am just old and tired too.

The composition is made interesting by the different lines in the photo.

You old..never :). Maybe you just never noticed it was so bent when it was covered in foliage Randy..

Hard not to notice. If it turns green come Spring you will have to go back and take another photo from the same spot.

That tree looks like something fell across it years ago and though it looks tired it is really showing how strong it is to have survived.

Nice one Randy.

Tanya Breese said...

looks like it will make a nice canopy in the summer time though!

Randy, I love a tree with a character ! I hope it stays there !

Sharon Anck said...

It's just pointing the way!

Wonderful composition.
I love old twisted trees like this one.

TexWisGirl said...

You got a beautiful picture with the trees and the path! I think we all are anxious for Spring time...and those trees as well!

Ah, poor, tired tree! Don't worry; you have a loooong way to go before you can be described as old and tired. I love your tree banner and should have told you this before.

Looks like it might fall on someone walking along that sidewalk someday! Sorry to be so morbid.

Poor old tree, it just needs an extra prop eh? (though somehow doubt you are anywhere near old and tired:)

Judy said...

Poor old thing, but it's still hanging on to life.
Did I mention how much I like the tree in your banner photo?

Thérèse said...

These two are just waiting for spring to show up. Be sure to come back to this same spot in two weeks from now.

Just reaching out to his sweetheart across the walkway to give her a hug and a kiss.

Bent but not broken! Probably makes a nice shade in summer.

VP said...

A very nice path, I hope they can do something for the old tree!

Lowell said...

I dunno about the tree but it reminds me of when I looked in the mirror this morning!

I'd say that poor thing is all bent out of shape!

Nancy said...

Worn but not worn out. :)

great shot randy.
I love it when you look up and
see things you've never noticed
before.

RedPat said...

It makes for a good pic and I like that meandering sidewalk, Randy!

cieldequimper said...

Lol, sometimes we don't see things that are so obvious, it happened to me with a tree not so long ago, remember? And I agree with Stefan. We'll want to see this one again!

Lois said...

I wouldn't want to stand under it too long. It makes a great picture though.

Jack said...

This is really odd. I hope it is safe and not in danger of falling on someone.

Paul said...

Now there's a tree with character! Had it been straight it would have been just like all the other trees and never noticed.

Kathy said...

Sometimes you just need to look up to see the beauty!
