Not quite accurate. I’ve photographed this oak several times over the years in Quabbin Park. It spreads so wonderfully. Sadly, for a reason unknown to me, the Authority have cut the wider branches removing a lot of the appealing character. So it is still there but with a different “body”.
I shared an image of this tree, from the same shoot so almost the identical composition, three years ago. I wanted to express the tree in a different way so went for monochrome. While the linked image is more colorful and comforting, this is more mysterious and maybe a bit spooky.
This makes three trees that I visited and photographed often which have had there character changed, in one case totally as it was cut down after falling apart, and I am sure there will be more. All things must pass.
