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.

    Awesome! Composition, tone and the lighting make this very dramatic and draw me in. Well done!

  11. 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.
