Tongues In Trees

I spied this tree from the road; it was hard to tell from the other trees around it, but it looked like it had been uprooted, yet it was blooming with white blossoms even though the rest of the trees in the area were merely green. After passing it several times in my routine drive I finally pulled over and stumbled through the piles of brush to get a better look. I still don't really understand it; the roots are completely exposed yet it lies on its side blooming with spring...

  11. Trees can be pretty resilient, even when uprooted like that. I'm guessing a bunch of the roots were still in the ground after it toppled, so it was able to keep drawing water and nutrients from the soil.

  12. i love how you paired that dress and belt. it makes you seem adventuresome which is something i really love about your style. it is very pretty and there is always something about your outfits that hints at exploration, contemplation, and solitude. i don't often see people who can wear such feminine clothes and still pull that off. beautiful!

  20. wow, I guess it's still clinging to life then. It's a lovely backdrop anyway!

  21. I usually watch your blog as a silent follower. However the tree question prompts a response. The blossoms are part of an attempt to reproduce and thus stay alive.

  22. It's actually rather beautiful. If I'd found it I'd claim it as 'my tree' and visit it regularly :)

  23. Wow, what a gorgeous tree...you're so lucky to have found such an enigmatic beauty.

    Do you set your tripod on part of the tree? Or do you shimmy as fast as you can after you press the button to get in place before the snap? Either way, your photos are awesome!

  24. @Indy, I move the tripod around a lot. With these sorts of shots you really just have to run to your spot & climb; it leads to loads of outtakes but a few good ones will come out. :)
