When Giants Weep

One of the largest Weeping Willows I have ever seen lives a majestic wind swept life that surely must have passed through many seasons. Instead of trying to capture the tree's sheer size, I opted for a zoom into the abstract "pouring" effect of its limbs from the massive main trunk.

Majestic ! Love your deep and throbbing blacks and the light through ! The sensation right below must be terrific, thanks for sharing, Rick.

Wildly wonderful - so often the best way to catch a tree's character !

An interesting effect that looks like you've "zoomed" in due to the tree's "weeping" foliage!! A great capture. I am surprised that it has lasted this long as I thought it was a relatively weak tree.

Perfect angle to show the majesty of this 'giant'. Amazing how long some trees will live ...
