Sycamore Tree and Blue Sky

I love the perspective on this. It makes that tree look miles high. The bark is beautiful and the contrast against the sky is great. #219037

Thank you Marsha! This was a tall tree but not miles lol! I just happened to look up and this is what I saw.... #1133993

I really like this shot. I have a similar one of a very different species (Ponderosa pine) from the Deschutes River in Oregon. Two guys and I take a whitewater rafting/fishing trip down the river every year and we've camped under that tree many times. It's high desert country and the sky was brilliant blue. It's buried as a slide in a box somewhere, and seeing this shot will motivate me to dig it out and scan it so I have a digital file.
