Tree Spirit by Moonbeam13 Tree Spirit by Moonbeam13
Large rough, gnarly, weathered tree
leaves of green spades
limbs of dance
reaching up
reaching down
limbs of support
bringing up life water
food gathering
wind whispers
speaking of things
through the leaves
rhythmic swaying
timeless motion
speaking to me
the emotions swaying
I will be that tree
grounded yet wanting to fly
speaking yet whispering
of my determination
never to surrender
this feeling of strength
holding
surviving
enduring

Inquietante imagen. Muy bien captado el detalle en el tronco. La edición en blanco y negro, adecuada.

muy fuerte, me parece una hermosa imagen, hay una lucha inherente en la composicion. y la luz, en vez de estar sobre el arbol es mas como si estuviera pegada a el. me encanta.
ehhh. escribi en español por que observe que lo hablas.

El árbol de la Vida y el del Conocimiento.
Cuál será el espíritu de cada uno?
Al ver tu foto me vienen a la memoria tantos árboles hermosos que al agrazarlos da la inmensa impresión que uno estuviese atado a la eternidad, especialmente en esos estados en los cuales la vida se esfuma de nuestras manos.

hey, that's nice! i did a photography assignment, focusing on banyan trees for a little over a month, and when i was through, i looked at trees very differently. i have some of them on my DA. it was one of the most enjoyable subjects i ever shot.

Beautiful description....I stared at this for quite awhile before realizing that if you look closely (and upside down) there is a skeletal-like face in those roots :o

the decision to use black and white here is a very good one. it makes you really focus on the shape of the tree itself. i love trees. i've always wanted to one day do a series of trees. i think i've told you that before though. oh well, it bears repeating. thank you for a lovely image.
