Today I thought I'd try something new and join in a fun blog hop dedicated to photography. I am quite a shutter bug, though I do best with stills, and I have quite a few shots I love to share. My point of view has a story to go with it, as authors tend to do.

My husband and I bought our house back in 2005, and quickly began calling this horrendous evergreen next to the garage "the ugly tree" because it fit. The thing looked like a bonsai tree that someone let get a little out of hand. One day while playing with the settings on my Nikon D60 I snapped this photo and it changed my point of view on the ugly tree. There is a beauty in the twisted curl of it's gnarly branches....


  1. What a great photo! It almost looks like a banyan tree! I don't think it is ugly at all! :D

  2. Elizabeth, this tree is beautiful. I am so glad you found the beauty and shared it with us. I love it.

  3. wow. that's actually quite cool!!

  4. This tree is incredible!!It would make an awesome book cover... I think Amelia would like it ;)
