Let me know what you think about my photograph of a giant sycamore.
Today’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is up. Recently, I was on an outing at a local park, and spied the sycamore that is shown in the Lens section.
These trees are known for their texture–bark that peels and gives a powerful patina to the surface. The contrast of shades and tones drew me closer and closer to its character.
But I also found myself staring upward, noticing how it pulled itself toward the sky. This tree stands alone and its girth is small compared to its height. Nevertheless, it has a gentle majesty, and inspires awareness of its presence.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
