The Big Old Tree - Judith Sparhawk
In that I'm mostly in the house all day, when I finally get out for my walk, I've taken to carrying my Canon G12, which is compact enough that it doesn't weigh me down, does zoom in pretty well for a small camera, and can shoot in Raw.
This big old tree is in the park up the street from where I live, and as many zillion times I have walked past it and noticed the branches that grow every which way, I've never photographed it until this week. It is getting its new leaves but is not fully leafed out, so the branches show up more than they will later. The bark looks like a Sycamore, and the leaves resemble that species, but I'm not sure I've ever seen one with branches quite like this.
