Trees In Reflection (Orford Qc June 2009)

I am a BIG tree fan! Back in the day when I found more time for wandering through forests, I took a lot of photos of the trees. I saw faces and shapes in them -day and night! There is nothing like a dark night in the woods when you see a crooked, creepy tree...talk about getting the adrenaline going! (My wild imagination is at it again!)

In fact, I wrote a poem about trees coming to life in an apple orchard. This was based on an incident that happened to me - I got lost in an orchard at dusk and I got very scared! Though I can't prove the trees came to life, my imagination definitely believes they did lol! I actually submitted my poem, The Apple Orchard, as part of the Scribble Picnic's "Pajama" theme.

Wizard of Oz Trees (source ... the interweb)

How will you depict a tree, or trees? A forest? A critter in the woods? A lone tree in a desert? A tree coming to life? A scene from a movie? A couple sitting under a tree watching the sunset? Will you draw, paint, take a photo, write a poem? I can't wait to see your creation!!

Here are photos I've taken of trees, I titled them according to what I saw in them. I hope they inspire you!!
