Fenced Austerity

Fenced AusterityI’ve passed by this tree numerous times but never photographed it until now. It’s been dead for years so I’m guessing the only reason it hasn’t been cut down is because it looks so dang cool.

    Oh, I love dead trees like that, they are so sharp and violent looking. It reminds me of a hill a few miles away from where I live, which is the highest point for several miles and gets struck by lightening, so there are lots of dead trees there like that.

  12. Yep – looks DANG cool!! Like a post-apocalyptic scene… Lovely tones that really capture the essence of the feeling. Nice one!
