Taking A Stand

Out in a dry field off the freeway they stand, the fence in some spots has fallen. But the trees…they’ve taken a stand. Rain, or no rain. Except for one; but that’s a story for another day.

    Wonderful shot, Angeline. At first glance, I thought snow was on the branches. It’s not the photo. It’s been so long since we’ve seen bare tree limbs that my eyes probably didn’t recognize them when they saw them. πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Amy. Yes, I know drought is a concern in more places than California. We’ve now had a day of rain, and more expected this weekend…but we’re still told it isn’t enough to make up, and that it would take storms almost every day from here through May to bring us up to par. Sigh!

      Thank you so much. I’ve been looking at that field, those trees, for weeks as I drive by. I finally went up Sunday to specifically take photos during an overcast day with rain on the way.

        It is a bit interesting that we can see a beautiful scene many times that we begin to take it for granted…it can make it hard to pull out the camera when the timing is perfect. Nice.

        I was fearful that the ranchers would come in and clear the fencing and the one tree that had toppled over, and knew I had to get there before that might happen.

    You took me there. The grey sky and chill told me snow was coming. A few geese flew overhead, honking in the mist. The soft crunch of your rubber wheels leaving the blacktop and rolling across the small stones told me you were here too. I leaned against the wobbly old white fence, Mr. SLR Nikon tucked under my arm, under the spread of the leafless trees awaiting your “another story”. Thanks, Harold http://www.throughharoldlens.com

      You are so right on with the setting, except for the geese (or maybe I just didn’t notice them as they flew overhead). As I snapped the last photo the first drop of rain fell. The rest of the story is coming with that one tree that has called to me for weeks as I’ve driven by.

    Trees…God’s gift to mankind. Beginning with the…Tree of Good and Evil. What if Adam hadn’t taken a bite of the forbidden fruit…
