Look Up


Sometimes you find an interesting photo in the most unusual place. On the South Creek Trail there is a large Eastern Red Cedar that you pass. It catches my attention every time I walk by it. Yesterday I decided I was going to take a picture of this tree somehow so I went over and looked straight up the trunk. I decided it was worth a try.

Here is the result. It was near noon so the sun was a huge factor in the shot, but I kind of like the way it turned out.

Has something ever bugged you until you finally decided to take a picture of it?

Hope every one has a "Good Friday".

I really like this shot. I did about the same thing with a white oak tree of mine. It looked better on the horizontal than the way it was taken vertical. I did one like your picture of a spruce here in my backyard and that raccoon was walking along the branches pretty high up. She was some raccoon.

We have one that comes at night and eats some dog food or some seed that is left out. I call her or him (not sure) "little round face" as her face is so round it is like she is taking sterroids or something.

Oh yes, lots of things bug the daylights out of me. I sometimes have to stop thinking about it. But my wife says that is one of my problems and that is I think of something and then jump up and go do it.

I like photography a lot and I like the wildlife that lives here or comes and goes in my backyard. I don't think I would know what to do if I moved and looked outside and saw nothing.

Wow what a wild world that would be for me.

In my lifetime I have learned most of the Eastern birds and their sounds or songs. I have had a lot of success with local backyard wildlife and it changed my life. I owe them so much and they helped my mom and I out with their meat and eggs during the war when we were as poor as Job. So this is a kind of repayment from me to them.

It works. I wanted to thank you for your visits. I look forward to them.

Have a nice Easter.

Interesting perspective. I've seen "looking up the trunk" tree shots, but yours is rotated and is different. I like it.

I love this perspective! I did go on the Art Walk, but only to the Creamery and Well Fed Head. Our club has some great shots!
