One of my beloved lone trees

[Jan. 5th, 2014 09:33:00 PM]

This is one of my favourite models
I have been shooting this tree throughout the seasons for many years now.
This shot was taken after the recent Ice storm in the Toronto area. The field where this tree resides was completely iced over. The walk out to this tree would have been a struggle due to the deep snow. The recent ice storm made it quite easy. I walked on top of the ice like it was a giant white parking lot.

There is a twin tree in this same field

Here are additional images of these trees

Thanks for looking :D

Awesome!!!
Thanks for all of the views votes and comments.
I can not really say I am back because I do not feel that I ever left. It just seems that life is too busy. You heard the saying "Stop and smell the Roses" mine is Stop and shoot the trees ... LOL

Thanks again for looking

Coley

Congratulations Coley. Fine image.
