  1. Wow. This is an amazing photo. I love the black and white.

  2. So beautiful. I wonder, if I were a tree which tree would I be? One of the straight-shooters or a tree that clung to another.


  3. Awesome photo! It sure sets the stage for a great short story.

  4. Your photo: lovely. Your description of it: beautiful flash fiction. Leaves room to imagine. Thanks for your post. ~Heather

  5. That’s a neat photo. I love black-and-white photography. If helps you focus on what’s important.


  6. This picture is simply beautiful!

  7. Amazing photo. I’ve seen smilier trees to that in Japanese Gardens, but never in the forest.

    • It really stuck out. I wish I had a better vantage point to compose the photo, but I was on a trail in a low area and put my camera between some headstones to get this photo.

  8. amazing photo. You have great work. this picture is so beautiful, i love it.

  9. Thanks for sharing…just beautiful!
    Some people NEED to hug!


  10. Great photo some times black and white just says it all…great

  11. if you take a second to really think about how trees intertwine with each other, it kind of symbolizes diversity. Now a days everyone’s trying to be different but it’s the people that are actually being themselves that are the “next big thing”

    • My brothers used to always tell me “You’re just trying to be different.”
      I’d fight back, “That’s good thing.”

  12. wow. BW works well. an obvious metaphor for relationships which others don’t approve of i think?


  13. Absolutely breathtaking picture. Beautiful with a mysterious quality.

  14. Amazing image! And, what a wonderful point of interest that these two trees alone were bent and intertwined.

  15. Exquisitely beautiful.

  16. After living and working in the concrete jungle of Tokyo for five years I usually think that Japan is the ugliest place in the world. Thanks for reminding me that there are coeners of beauty and mystery. I must get out of the city more often.

    • Yes, you must head out to Kyoto on the bullet train.
      I do find Tokyo stunning, but I see what you mean. I never really want to hang around my neighborhood and take photos, it all seems so uninteresting.

  17. I mean seriously. How much can one love a Canon? 🙂 Beautiful shot. Would definitely be eye-catching to be in the thick of it.

  18. Stunning photo!!!

  19. Very Alice-in-Wonderlandyish. Nice photo, and best wishes on your photography endeavors!

  20. These are two very smart trees! Thanks for the reminder. We all need to cling to each other. Awesome photo!

  21. Nice pictures!

  22. I can’t seem to peel my eyes off this photo just yet … 🙂

  37. I was just wandering around online and found your site…and for quite sometime could not help but stare at this photo. It made me wonder if you stumbled into a moment where the forest/trees were telling secrets. Both takes…black and white and color are beautiful. I look forward to seeing more of your work. This piece, with all of its curves, I found to be very hypnotic.

  38. Hi Diane. You nailed it with “hypnotic.” It was one of the most hypnotic and peaceful places I’ve ever been.
    I’m looking forward to more of your thoughts on my photos, thanks for your comment.

  39. What a breath-taking image… you really cpatured something special there.
