Have you ever noticed that the simpler things in life have a natural sophistication, splendour and intricate structuring all their own? An individual snowflake or that pesky grain of sand stuck between your toes at the beach possess an individual personality that makes it unique in the universe.
That grand old tree in the front yard that you have been meaning to chop down or prune back when the time is right does have certain characteristics that makes it a unique if not at times an under appreciated entity existing right outside your front door.
I once again decided to look out my patio door’s window and try to visually appreciate and share the natural splendor and beauty of a tree that has withstood the ravages of many years of vacillating weather patterns, summer droughts, winter blizzards and spring thaws.
That familiar and affable tree appeared to be more than willing to have me pick up my camera and somehow attempt to capture its good, better and best profiles. Streaming sunlight, the right camera angles and of course chance enabled me to capture the magic and the uniqueness of this tree.
