Week 37 – #50 Its Bent or Twisted

on April 13, 2013

I have  been driving by a tree every day that  is all twisted up, but of course, I do not have my camera with me.  This prompted me when I was in the Caribbean to remember this particular theme.  On Sint Maarten (Dutch side) there is a beach – sunrise beach.  It is so named because it is the beach to catch sunrise.  There is a lovely cove and the parasailing and wind surfers are out in full force just beyond the waves off the right just outside my frame.  I was not there to photograph them, and I did not have a long enough lens (400 plus 1.4 converter was still not enough other than to show them as a colorful blip).  It was this wind shaped tree.  The leaves are only on one side, which would not provide much for shade for the one slat rope swing.  Try I may, everytime I was driven to this beach, there was always a car parked under it, until we were leaving for our cruise.  Unfortunately it wasn’t sunrise, but it was still a lovely view and you can imagine what this poor tree has lived through to have all its branches twisted to one side.

    This is an interesting photograph, Sue. I can just imagine a little girl swinging high with her pretty blond hair blowing in the wind. The tree in itself tells a story, doesn’t it?

    Nice shot sue – the day we were in Sint Maarten we were soaked to the skin so this is what it really looks like.

    The tree appears to me as pointing to the left for something of interest. The colors and the border really enhances the picture. Nice job.
