My tribute to the great Johnny Horton song. These trees are the survivors of the Robert Fire, which decimated the western portion of Glacier National Park in 2005. The fire jumped the Northfork of the Flathead River here, in Great Northern Flats, and entered the Park. I always find a melancholy beauty in these trees.
The snowflakes fall as winter calls and time just seems to fly
Is it the loneliness in me that makes me want to cry
My heart is sad like a morning dove that’s lost it’s mate in flight
Hear the cooing of his lonely heart through the stillness of the night
Whispering pines whispering pines tell me is it so
Whispering pines whispering pines you’re the one who knows
My darling’s gone oh she’s gone and I need your sympathy
Whispering pines send my baby back to me.
See that squirrel up in the tree his mate there on the ground
Hear their barking call of love of the happiness they found
Is my love still my love oh this I gotta know
Send a mesaage by the wind because I love her so
Photo taken at Great Northern Flats in Glacier National Park, Montana (USA), August 20, 2011, with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. Postprocessing was done in Photoshop CS. These are the actual colors of the sky. The only editing I did was an Orton effect to soften the sky. I then sharpened the original layer and selected the trees to place over the Orton layer.
