Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

I remember the first time I saw this tree. The way it was all alone, opportunistically jetting out of a clump of dead roots right out in the middle of Lake Ontario. The waves that day were beating it up and we thought for sure it was washed up or something. Certainly not growing right there on the sandy beach. Now a couple years later, it still looks so odd and out of place to me. I’m sure there is a life lesson here but I’ll spare you my analogies. – Southwick Beach State Park, Ny USA.

    Very beautiful, and I love the blues/browns in this. The darker tones seem to showcase the tree perfectly.
