A couple of years ago, I chanced upon this amazing tree that throws this amazing pose, as if she is reaching up to the sky in a perfectly balanced asana. The Yoga Tree, as she became known, projects a serenity, grace and indomitable spirit that many of us strive toward.
At this point, I have several thousand images of this amazing tree ranging through the seasons with a wondrous variety of skies and light conditions. My favorites among them will become part of a coffee table book that I plan to put together during 2016.
In this image during the Autumn season, she stands with supreme grace and wisdom, backed by the morning light and a cloud-cover that speaks of a day full of hope and beauty.
A twist to this tale is that the Yoga Tree sits at the edge of a farm, where they have been dumping significant amounts of waste soil in the field behind her. This may mean that her lifespan could be shortened, so I visit her regularly to capture her every mood.
