Atop the Zugerberg (Mt Zug) behind my home town of Zug, Switzerland this tree can be passed by on the main road as one takes a walk or perhaps sets off on a longer hike.
I have stood in awe of this tree many times and it never ceases to impose upon me it’s power, it’s beauty and sheer presence.
I have taken many photos to capture it’s moods so far in several different times of year. This one has been it’s darkest so far, and a moment I just had to share with others.
