Just loved the light in this. Taken late afternoon in July. NSW Australia.
Featured in Red Door Creative

A lone tree stripped of bark naked and weathered it stands, out stretched twisted branches reaching out, as if they were beckoning hands.
Foreboding clouds settling low as though it were about to rain, something about these images speaks of His loneliness and His pain.
Leaning slightly away upright stones firmly fixed, hard and etched by time, something about these images speaks of hard hearts and narrow minds.
A lone tree casting forth its shadow of grace like a sentinel it stands, perhaps its creations way of reminding humanity who it was that crucified the Son of Man!
Inspired by the photo “One Sunday” by GailD
