We had a tree removed last week. So this post is about losing shadows.
This is a photo from just a day or two before it was gone. It was an ornamental pear tree. My Forest Ranger Dad had been telling me for a long time, “Alan, that is one crappy tree.” I didn’t say anything to him but I was thinking “That crappy tree is the one we have.”
The crappy tree developed a crack that went clear down to the bottom of the trunk. You can’t get much crappier than that. A turkey wishbone type tree.
Here it is in healthier days.
And during Christmas.
And a winter shot with another crappy tree that we removed a couple years ago. My master gardener wife is planning on another tree, a better, tree to be planted in the fall.
I miss my crappy tree though. I loved its shadows.
I am linking with Shadow Shot Sunday.
