Found on the side of the road.

When I'm in a car, I'm always looking for interesting  places to photograph.  Usually I see them when I cannot stop.  This particular site I found last week, and I liked it so much I went back for the mornings first light.  I think the return was worth it.

Tree near the creek

Traditions can be a lot of fun.  The Saturday after Thanksgiving we usually have another Thanksgiving dinner with my wife's side of the family.  If the weather is nice we walk to the creek where my wife and her friends spent a lot of time as children.  Along the hike is this little stream before the creek.  This year it was very warm, and beautiful.

Old Shade Maple

A friend reminded me that I haven't posted any trees in a while.  I apologize.  It's been a very busy fall with lots of photography projects (paid).  They help me to buy more equipment. :-)

This is an interesting tree.  I first saw it about 30 years ago when I went camping at Peg's pond.  It has provided shade for many years.  A few years ago, a section of this tree fell on part of the cabin on the left side of the photo.  This past year it came down in two more pieces.  We will miss this tree dearly.
