I discovered this tree on one of my hunts for photo opportunities. I thought it was stunning in how complex its life is with so many other living things using it for support, covered in their stories, yet still so majestic in its singularity that its majesty cannot be obscured from view. I have been photographing it ever since the first time I saw it, full with summer growth and beautiful with fall color but this one fog covered January evening revealed its bony mystery in a way I have never seen since. For me this is Monet’s haystack. That is what is so captivating and exciting about photography – you just never know what you might come home with…and what is happening when you are not there that leads you out again and again.
