WPC Final Week – Favorites – Pt.4

Persistence

The Final WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has presented their final theme of All-Time Favorites, which, while being a bit sad that it’s their last prompt, is a great way to finish.

Sometimes the images that I favor are rather simple and straightforward, such as today’s choice.  What is simpler than a tree in a field?

Such as this tree that has stood the test of time…

What caught my attention, and caused me to take this shot, is the evidence of wind’s influence on the growth direction of this tree. While it spread in many directions, so as to catch the Sun’s positive influence, there is a noticeable lean to this lovely tree.  Also, the deep yellow tones in the field, as contrasted against the deep blues of the sky, contributed to my interest…

What this tree told me, more than anything else, is the value of persistence, against the elements and to stand across the years.

Have a great day!

The Wise Tree

The Final WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has presented their final theme of All-Time Favorites, which, while being a bit sad that it’s their last prompt, is a great way to finish.

Today’s favorite is one that a lot of people have commented on over the years.  It also is one of my favorite subjects, as I took many photos of this particular tree over the years. Yes, of course, I’m talking about the Yoga Tree, which has been the subject of many a shot. Among all those images, it is not easy to pick just one that stands out, though!

So here’s my choice…

The Wise Tree

The Wise Tree is one of the early captures of this wonderful tree in the series that stretched over three years.  The cloud pattern is waht drew me in for this shot, and I was not disappointed when I got there!

This tree has given me much joy over the years!

Have a great day!
