Torn from the ground by winds teeth,
broken by the ground that gave it life,
a silver fading to a green life,
kissed by the passing of the young.
This tree came down during the severe winter storms several years ago. It rests on the sloping valley sides that fall back to the High Force waterfall in Teesdale.
Converted into black and white and best viewed large.
Shot on an Olympus E30.
