This scene makes me think of a wise old sage dispensing wisdom to the crowd of youngers all gathered around him to hear his thoughts on life.

The tree is old and bears no leaves or fruit any more but everything around it flourishes and grows.

This scene was photographed on a nature walk near my home in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Layered and edited in Photoshop CS% using my own image and texture.

    In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful…Alice Walker

    I’ve walked your walk Robin and agree there is much beauty along the pathways…Jules…Favour

    Boy isn’t that just the way….even with people. The old and wise are drab and without color and yet the young, full of life and color, gather around to gain all they can from the aged. Beautiful depiction and description. Love it, Robin!

  • Thank you so much dear Barb! Yes you are right! Life does seem like that!
