I saw this tree whilst driving home from Bathurst.
Tried to capture it with a bit of space and ended up with a photo that feels a bit grim, I think. Of course I’m just attaching that to this image, but that’s how it feels to me.
I wonder as to how the tree ended up like this but I have no answers. I’m guessing it has to do with people cutting it back, though maybe it was dying and parts of it have fallen off over time. I don’t know but I can guess.
I do like the space in this shot as it adds to the mood. As the sky was mostly overcast it helps to draw attention to the tree whilst also isolating it in space. It’s a tree surrounded by severe emptiness.
This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness” for this week.
I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit.
A lot of what people are submitting will likely end up here.
I hope you enjoy.
