Solitary Tree

Solitary Tree

Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. — Patricia Sampson
This solitary tree stands in a small remnant of prairie located in Owen Conservation Park in Madison, Wisconsin.

    a lovely image with beautiful reddish-brown color that does reminds us that it is fall after all.
    We took a walk through some fields around here yesterday, there I also noticed 3 isolated trees that somehow stood out and caught my attention. I find it interesting how our pictures reflect our personal view (here I am talking about ‘view’ in terms of how each of us sees nature, the tree, the flower, the Image). I decided to show the isolation of the trees by including quite a bit of what surrounds them, you show a lot more detail of the tree itself; individuals, all of us! And that is what makes photography such a fascinating art, isn’t it.

    Nature Gal, Thanks. I have another photo I’ll post soon. It also has 3 trees like yours, but they are all separated quite a bit, and stand in a diagonal angle. I was attracted to the perfect perspective effect.
    Yo, Thanks. Glad you stopped by.
