The Tree Of Life

For once, I am going to say much about this shot and just let the song lyrics below speak to the message I am trying to convey with this photograph.
---John

Tanya Tucker-Strong Enough To Bend

There's a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
And the reason its still standing
It was strong enough to bend

For years, we have stayed together
As lovers and as friends
What we have will last forever
If we're strong enough to bend

When you say something that you can't take back
Big wind blows and you hear a little crack
When you say "Hey well I might be wrong"
You can sway with the wind till the storm is gone
Sway with the wind till the storm is gone

Like a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
Our love will last forever
If we're strong enough to bend

When you start thinkin' that you know it all
Big wind blows and a branch will fall
When you say "Hey this job takes two"
We can sway with the wind till the skies turn blue
Sway with the wind till the skies turn blue

Like a tree out in the backyard
That never has been broken by the wind
Our love will last forever if we're strong enough to bend
Our love will last forever if we're strong enough to bend.

I'm sorry it took so long for me to reply. The twin tree was in NC, near Mooresville. Even the way the hay was cut around the tree is the same. It's uncanny. I love this picture!

There was a tree in the pasture in front of our house where I grew up. When I saw this picture, I could have sworn this was it. It's exact - all the way to the fence in the background. Thank you for the picture, and the memory and tears.

Nice photography, but i think this tree of life needs a bit more "life". What do you think?

The colours in this one really create a nice atmosphere together with the light and the black tree :nod:
