A Limb Hanging Out

IMG_0883

I think this one fits the theme of the weekly photo challenge: weathered.  This tree is enormous–towering and sprawling over the Grand River.  It has appeared in other photos I’ve posted on here (and at least one more still to come soon).  That it has survived as long as it has, through however many dozens of winters, is extraordinary to me, especially considering the appearance of many of the trees around it–bent, fallen, and windblown.  None as majestic as this one.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

This photo was taken from inside a covered bridge that spans a rivulet.  I don’t know how old it is, but the elements are steadily taking their toll on this tiny bridge.  Weathered.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

This is my favorite tree.  I’m pretty sure it’s a birch, but it has grown in ways I’ve never seen a birch grow.  It is a tribute to nature’s ingenuity.  Growth.
