The camera never lies… Or does it !?!?…

Stranded

Another view of one of my favourite trees… Yeah I know I’m weird… but not as weird as a tree that lives in a pond… ;)

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend…

  1. Is that tree still alive or did the pond prevent it from getting any foliage? I am still envious that you actually get clouds with some regularity. Nothing but overcast mornings with hazy afternoons around here in the summer.

    • Yeah it’s still alive Sean, and somewhere I’ve got shots of it in full leaf too… Trust me though, we don’t always get cool clouds… Normally they’re just drab and grey and crappy…

    I do love this waterlogged tree. It’s too cool. And I am with Sean about the clouds. Here it is just blahhhh…

    • Well mefinks I could be talked in to swapping my clouds for the west coast climate, and dramatic coastline… lol… Well ok, maybe just some of my clouds… ;)

    Lovely shot. It always amazes me how trees and shrubs can soldier on despite less than ideal conditions. I don’t think I’d do as well, permanently standing up to my knees in water! :D

    • Ahhh but imagine how tall you might end up… and wrinkled too… lol.. ;)

  4. I just love the color of the light in this shot. Again you’ve got me thinking that you are showing us fall, but perhaps this is early spring before the leaves have come out?

    • LOL… Thanks K… Yeah apologies for the season throwing shots… lol.. I tend to keep a fair selection of shots I like for later postings, so the seasons don’t always coincide with when I post… That said though I think this was only shot a few months ago… :)

  5. The tree is just being efficient – why grow somewhere where you need to wait for water to evaporate and fall on you, when you can go direct to the source? :P Nice shot.

    • Funny enough those were my first thoughts when I first came across this particular tree… lol… Why don’t they all find a lake as a new best friend.. Thanks JP… :)

  6. That is a beautiful shot, I love the warm tones to the photo and the color of the sky compliments the scene

    • Thanks so much Consuelo, it certainly was quite an amazing evening..

      August 3, 2010 at 9:38 pm

  7. The warm and cool tones here are just perfect!

    That is one cool tree. It’s all like, ‘Yeah, I live in a pond. So what?’ :-)

    • Haha… Yeah it does have that “I’m WAY cleverer than you” aura about it… lol.. Thanks Tracy… :)

    Great photo! Hard to believe it’s a tree in a pond in Kent, I can kind of imagine it more in swampland in the deep south of America or somewhere else. (Not that I’ve been to America).

    We had an earthworm that lived on the edge of our pond and used to stick its head or rear end into the water for long periods the return again to its home. The same worm, weird. (Have you noticed how all the weird creatures find me, I don’t get any normal ones?)
    ;)

    • Haha.. Yeah it’s not your run of the mill Kentish tree location… but pretty cool all the same… Thanks Val..and LOL at your worm… ;)

  10. Funky, we have lots of trees growing out of the water here in Florida, but you got a good capture on this one. Nice lighting and color.

    August 5, 2010 at 2:04 am

    • Yeah I’ve seen a few of them too Mike… I’m not so sure they’d stand up to our slightly more “temperate” climate though… lol… Many thanks…

      August 5, 2010 at 10:45 pm

  11. What a cool place, almost looks autumnal with all those orange colours. Nice.

    August 5, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    • Cheers Brian… Well it was more post spring / pre summer… but the light was pretty golden..

      August 5, 2010 at 10:46 pm

  12. You’ve captured some amazing colours in this photo. Very nicely done.

    August 6, 2010 at 10:51 am

    • Thanks so much Greysqrl… The colours were pretty amazing that evening…

      August 6, 2010 at 6:45 pm

  13. Very cool. There is a tree growing out in the middle of a very large lake here in Upstate NY, and on the few occasions I’ve had to pass by, it completely fascinates me!
    You, weird?? Not at all…..unique is the word you’re going for. ;)

    August 6, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    • Well methinks you’re most certainly going to have to take a shot or two of it next time your passing… just for the weirdo unique wotsit over the even bigger pond… ;)

      August 6, 2010 at 6:51 pm

  14. Amazing colors in this photo. Wonderful!

    August 22, 2010 at 1:38 pm

      August 22, 2010 at 2:24 pm

  15. Love the colors here, wonderful!

    • Thanks Derrick.. The tones this evening were real nice…

      August 30, 2010 at 9:56 am

  16. I like it very much!!!!

    October 23, 2010 at 11:08 pm

    • Thanks… It’s a pretty weird place for a tree to flourish though dont’cha think…
