It is a cool, perfect Monday morning, and after a good weekend, I’m full of positive energy. 🙂
I’ve thought about this post for a while, and I’ve decided that it is time to do it now. I’ll probably do another similar one in future, as I cannot stop taking pictures of…YES, you’ve guessed it – TREES!!!! 🙂 Dead trees to be more precise. I’m not going to say very much, as the pictures are just what they are – a series of dead trees.
I am fascinated by the shapes of dead trees, they way they sometimes seem to reach for something unattainable. Life, perhaps?
I hope you don’t find the idea of a bunch of dead trees morbid, but I don’t. I think of it as a tribute to these once beautiful pieces of nature, that are so essential to our well-being on this planet. And even after they’ve stopped making oxygen for us to breathe, after their beauty has supposedly gone, I still find them mesmerizing.
This picture was taken 2 years ago, on a trip to a place called Magoebaskloof. It is a beautiful area in the mountains, and there are often a dense mist hanging around, as was the case for most of the weekend we spent there.
Oh, and as you can see, the clouds featured as well! 🙂
