I drive or ride by this tree sometimes three times a week. I refer to it as "the tree". I usually look at it whenever I go by. It has a different look depending on the season. The above photo was taken Friday afternoon about 4 pm.
I was going to post this photo yesterday morning but decided against it Friday night. Yesterday, Stacey at Addicted to The Click posted a wonderful image of a dramatic sunset and tree that she calls hers. At the risk of being a copycat, she suggested that I still show my tree.
The tree itself is not necessarily interesting. The fact that it's alone in a field is sort of attractive. And just like the fields I showed a week ago, this field is also filling with rain water. In fact, this field is about 1/2 mile down the road from the others.
The images above and below were taken four years ago last week. It was later in the afternoon and I didn't have a tripod with me so the ISO was pretty high. The tree looks lonely yet confident.
It's interesting that many trees go through the harsh winter months stripped of all their leaves and yet come back stronger in the spring. I think God has the same plan for us when He brings us through trials and tribulations. And I don't always remember to do this but I think it's important to turn to Him immediately at the first sign of trouble.
