For lo He created the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought....The Lord, the God of hosts is His name...Amos 4:13
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

A gust of wind blew

Thru' the weeping willow tree

As it stood o'er me,

So high and mighty..

Golden branches lightly

Touched me too,

As God directed the view.

Poetry by me AJP
-----------------------------------------------------

This is the third time I have changed my entry for the juxtaposition theme...but I decided this was the best one as it shows the size of the tree in comparison to my size...This tree is gigantic as you can see and it is over 100 years old...I used my 18mm focal range to show you how tall it is on this self portrait. As I stood there in those 10 seconds of time it got very windy but I think it enhanced this image...

In the Self Portraits photo essay.

    Thank you all so much for your kind words...Yes, Donald it is a weeping willow tree and it is over 100 years old. One of the big limbs broke off in a storm a few years ago and it is getting a fungus on it but so far the tree is still standing.
