Blizzard Tree by velveteagle

Have you ever looked at something and thought ahhh a capture some day. Today was the day of the first attempt. It was a freaking blizzard out. High winds out in the country in my area the farmers call windswept. I headed into town for brunch at the pub. The roads were clear if you call two feet of snow in the good parts clear. High winds.. no courage to go to the tree. So after a good brunch and a few shots of whiskey neat style. I came back home.. I felt daring. Pushing snow with a big four wheel drive truck I went. There it was.. I fell in love. Out in the winds with the snow blowing hard I set the camera on a bean bag my wife made me for this purpose. Focus , Light , Frame, Oh God please.. Here is the first one. Maybe more. When a new sky appears.. storms or sunset we shall see.. I hope you find it in your heart to view large. I do so love you all on RB..

This was taken a few miles east of Allegan, Michigan USA

Can you tell
its me
Blizzard Tree
out there
so tall
so free
another season
shall walk away
another ring
round my bark
rain and sunshine
blizzard or snow
this marriage of time
shall flow
right here
where I belong
in this moment
I am
Blizzard Tree!

    That was yesterday’s scene. I was like that would make great photos but I did not have the courage to go outside in the wall of white blowing across the fields next to my house to take any photos.

  • Angellandspot it was yesterday to you.. today for me. Go for it ..
