10.04.2015 Ocean Path Sunrise

I like this tree a lot and have photographed it before…including later in the day (the 27th and night of the eclipse which I did not witness) as the full moon rose.   I am not too keen on those shots unless I decide to do a composite…we’ll see.

Trees, and plants in general, have it pretty rough along the coast.  Winds, salt air and difficult winters take their toll.  If the elements can move those boulders around then this tree must have experienced just a bit of stress. Not much left of it now but character.

    Stark beauty Steve. The tenacity of organisms to cling to life always amazes me. The little wild plant poking iut of a crack in the pavement…
    Nature tells us that life is worth the struggle.

  2. It’s beautiful in silhouette and that star burst is gorgeous.

  4. Stunning image! Just gazing upon your capture of this glorious scene could be enough to make you forget the incident of the photo bombers.

  5. I like the tree in silhouette and the barren beauty of this scene. Excellent shot.


  6. I love your perspective of the world wearing down the coast until you have the fine grain of character showing.

    I’ve never thought of Acadians having a totem, but this would do perfectly well. It’s a striking photo, and thought-provoking. I like it.

    The tree is the definition of gnarled. Beautiful picture.

    The silhouette gives animation to the diminished tree. Makes me think of a semaphore signaler.

  10. Maybe you should have bombed the photobombers.
