The White Tree


One of the few consolations of Winter in Appalachia is that you can see the branching shapes of certain trees that stand out against the dead brown hills.

Such contrast and simple beauty.

It looks like a lung. I mean that in the coolest way possible!

Rick: Those white trees really stand out in nature.

'Tis the white tree of Gondor. "I saw a white tree...in a courtyard of stone...and it was dead."

I shot a white tree the other day, too, but mine was against a blue sky that made it stand out nicely.

I'm with Dale, that's the first thing I thought... "seven stones and seven stars and one white tree."

Interesting -- Just a few days ago I blogged some Appalachian tree pictures. As I said in the post I'm a sucker for tree pics and it doesn't matter whether they have leaves or not. A friend of mine who is a painter said that the branches are what is important about a tree, not the leaves. He's right.
