"T" is for Tree!!!


"If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees."
Hal Borland

I was entranced by this lone tree growing from the rocky cliff...
on the road to Rock Creek Lake...


  1. I love it in black and white, the textures of those rocks comes out really well and i love your new profile shot

  2. Reminds me of The Witch Tree on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Great photo!

  3. This is what I wanted to do first, because some trees have such wonderful magic shapes. Thanks for taking part in this ABC meme.

  4. Oh this reminds me of Ansel Adams for some reason. It's great Kathy. You should post on The World in BW!

  5. This is a stunning photograph! Trees rank right up there with my favourite things. You make me think of Joyce Kilmer's poem, "Trees." It begins: "I think that I shall never see ..."

  6. Wooo...Ansel Adams would be proud of you.

  7. nothing more perfect

  8. Nice shot!

    We moved back to Newport Beach for a year. It was nice to spend time with family but now were in Texas for awhile. :)

  9. I agree with Bibi. This is beautifully representative of Adams. It's gorgeous and very dramatic.

  10. Thanks Kate! Maybe this is the Witch Tree of the Eastern Sierras!!!

    Thanks Reader Wil!!!

    Thanks Joops!!!

    Aw Shucks Virginia!!! It's the Eastern Sierras in B&W... Ansel Adams is my guru!!!

    Thanks Black Jack and Carol!!! I like that poem!!!

    Ooooh!!! Thanks Bibi!!!

    Thanks Rog!

    You do get around James!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!

    Wow!!! Thank you Margaret!!!

  11. I'm going through your blog with google maps turned on. I wonder if this was on a road Vic and I took. It was fabulous and skimmed the edges of several lakes

  12. It's on the road to Rock Creek Lake...about a third of the way up the road, on the right side..
