Old Oak

Last night I payed a visit to one of the old oak trees on the north end of the Little lake Valley. I wanted to silhouette a tree against the night sky and it was the only location that I could think of off the top of my head that would be accessible without leaving the road and going onto private property. The night sky was beautiful and glorious. I had a really nice time photographing the tree from various angles but this one was my favorite. On the drive home I was got to thinking and realized that that tree is probably much, much older than I am. It's all part of God's wonderous creation. Have a beautiful day, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens @10mm, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a 3055 Ballhead.

  1. Thank you very much for stopping by and commenting Split Pea Traveler. It's always nice to see a new name pop up on the screen.

  2. This is a wonderful photo, night sky looking so beautiful and mysterious...

  3. Thank you Agnes Rogowska! It is pretty mysterious out there. It's really, really dark as well. You can see the glow of the small town of Willits off in the distance. Such a beautiful place to be at night.
