Unique Opportunity

While hiking through the woods I came upon 2 pines that had fallen over in a storm.  I found the crossing of the branches very interesting for a new perspective.

The Farmers Nightmare.

This tree is on 222 between Groton and Cortland NY.  It's one of my favorite trees in the area.  I know the farmer that rents this field to grow organic hay.  He doesn't own the field, and would like to cut it down.  It's difficult to mow the hay around it, and he loses some of the hay.  He said his wife won't let him cut it down.  I hope she continues to win this argument.

I only have about 30 minutes to photograph this tree today.  I was waiting for a sucker hole to shine some sun down on just thie tree.  It didn't happen.  Perhaps next time.
