Wind Swept Tree

Wind Swept Tree

We were away at the cottage this weekend and on the way back we kept and eye out for a tree my brother in-law said I needed to get a picture of . It is halfway between Teviotdale and Harriston. We don’t usually go down this road but we had no trouble finding it. The timing was pretty good with the sun  going down just behind the hill. Although about a half hour later the sky had a lot more colour in it. So Steve – Here is your tree! Thanks for telling me about it.

I have driven passed this little pond a few times and when there is no wind this tree reflects nicely in the pond. Even though the wind was up this evening the clouds were great and the sun lined up with the tree just right so I stopped and took a few shots. The location is the south east corner of Laurel Creek Park – Waterloo.

This one is from the Baden horse series. The sun was setting and we were getting ready to leave and this one seemed to be longing to ride of into the sunset

The horses ran around this feed shed and I spotted them through the window and fired of a couple a shots. Thought it made an interesting composition.

After taking pictures of the horses the other night we were standing around talking before leaving to go home. We all spotted this tree standing all alone in the field across the road. It was starting to get dark and the others had to leave so I grabbed my tripod and took a few shots of this wonderfully shaped tree. I still wonder why you see loan trees growing all by themselves in farm fields. If there is and actual reason let me know!

This is a picture my good friend Anthony Stocco took in Port Dover on Easter weekend. I have brought him over the HDR side. He will soon have a new web site up and running and I will post a link to it when it is ready.
