Monumental oaks, passionately intertwined:

…and an otherworldly bloom of tiny (1/8-inch) pink fruit on a patina of baby blue lichen:

Different pages in the same book, the Book of Life.

Our page is in there, too.  😉

Fantastic! I love the composition and perspective in the oak shot.

beautiful, yet somehow, it makes me sad.

must just be me today.

DC, this shot composed itself – it just asked me to lay on my back beneath a very low tripod in the woods. 🙂

Ans sherry, yes, there’s a sort of fatalism to this scene, a sense of inevitability. I felt that most strongly all the while I was there.

Strange, huh?

The oaks intertwined brings to my mind the issue of need. The oaks would not have needed to do this unless they had to, in order to survive. I think.

Oh, the metaphors we could call forth – “shared roots,” “strength in unity,” “reaching for the light…”

I was pleasantly surprised to look up and see these beauties as I struggled to photograph some uncooperative ‘shroomers.

Funny how that works, eh?
