If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Twisted - Day 370

My husband found this old tree and loved the way it looked, so our family drove out to see it.  It is said that some trees grow twisted to protect themselves from the high winds.  By twisting, they make their trunks stronger and less likely to be broken.  I always find it interesting how nature works to protect each species.  

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Maya Angelou

  1. Wow. I've seen bent trees but that one is remarkable. And the other trees around it are still straight?
