In a search to understand my love of shapes and textures in nature, I am naturally drawn to the trees. There are some that just disappear in and among the trails that I hike. Then there are others that continue to speak and draw me in.
When you research horoscopes, I fall under the Aries sign. There is no mistake! I am passionate, motivated, confident, always up for a challenge and as many might say strong willed.
Yes those are definitely words that I would use to describe me. But what draws me in is that the fire is fueled by wood. OK, yes I know some might say that is a stretch. But I will challenge you when you see the trees or pieces of wood that call my name. When many other’s pass them by on a regular basis.
I love the texture, grain and colors that have come from this long standing specimum. It is beyond its prime but still a staple in and among this trail. I was able to capture these images as the thorns and the underbrush have long died off as the weather turned cold. It was once a force to be reckonned with and its mighty presense can still be felt though no longer thriving.
Maybe its just me and telling a story, I believe but fire represents energy and inspiration. It is looked upon as compassion, excitment and inspiration. There is no fire here on a dead tree laying on its side for me to pass on my hikes, but it does call to me to be recognized and acknowledge as I wander past it!
