Hi Charles- Interesting desaturated shot - what kind of tree is that? Lots of character.

Hi Charles,

Excellent photo! It's very dark and intense. Looks like the weather was about to take a turn for the worst any minute! Thanks for sharing!

:)

Debi, thanks for visiting----I was just at your flickr account checking out all your gorgeous pictures----overwhelming beautiful collection you have there.  This tree is a wind battered Douglas Fir right on the edge of the water.  They get "bonsaied" like this from the serious weather they have to deal with.  This shot was in the early morning fog.

Matt, this is in the morning just before the fog cleared for the day---very common along the coast

Charles, thanks for visiting my Flickr site! I appreciate the kind words.

 Ah, the fog explains the coloring - very moody shot. Amazing what a tree can endure, isn't it?

Debi scrolling down your flickr site is like going to an art museum----I can only take it for a short time because I get visually overloaded:)  It is a place to go back to over and over.  Trees reflect their environment so well---they can visually describe their environment.

Charles - What a caliginous scene.  Sorry, I just wanted to find another word for dark:)

Posted by Jason Sardi, Your Agent for Life (Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina) over 9 years ago

Perfect word for it Jason:)

Caliginous?  I never heard that one!  Pretty cool looking tree though.....

When I look at that picture, I keep expecting a flock of birds to appear straight out of a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's, "The Birds."

Ann, I like the word almost as much as the picture:)

Myrl---in this case it would most likely be seagulls:)

Charles, I'm used to seeing this in the fall but in mid August it is rare indeed. Looks like we'll hit new high temperatures today though...

I'm in awe at imagining what this tree has seen, lived through, can endure.  We can all take a lesson.

Paul, yes it is TOOO hot today!

Tammy, I am afraid we aren't really designed to take this kind of abuse----but this tree would not be very good at psycotherapy either:)

Charles, thanks for the amazing compliment - I'm honored you think so!

You are welcome:)

Charles, that looks like an oriental silk screen or something. What a great atmospheric photo!  I could definitely see it as a motif on a Chinese wall hanging...

Shoshana, here is another one from that same walk in the fog.

Mr Charles,

Did you know that Whidbey Island it really not very far from your house. You would find it to be an easy days drive.

Nutsy, thanks for that----I may have to go up there some time:)  Are you off your meds again?
