Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

This tree is a beautiful sprawling Live Oak. It is huge and has to be held up by cables and supported by braces. I do not know how old it is, if I find out I will add it to this description of the photo. This tree is one of many varieties of trees in the cemetery.

    A nice place to rest! A well-composed shot, Ann. Are there very many above-ground crypts like in Lousiana?

    Don, there are quite a few above ground crypts there but not nearly as many as in Louisiana. Most of the crypts are for some very wealthy families and they are very elaborate. Sometime, when I get back to Glenwood, I will photograph some of the crypts.

    I'm sure the cemetary is remarkable, and must have some amazing history, but the tree is the scene stealer here - WOW! I watched the 'Life After Humans' program on the History Channel and part of the program focused on those huge oak trees at the Alamo, and how they currently need to be braced, but without human intervention, would eventually crumble the Alamo.

    The tree is a wonder!!! Excellent capture, Ann. I am so glad they are making an effort to maintain the tree so it doesn't break or fall.

    Love the shot! I am glad there are ways of supporting a tree with braces...Wish we had done that with our huge weeping willow tree before one of the limbs broke off after a wind storm some years back.

    What a peaceful looking place to rest our mortal bones. The lovely old oak seems to be spreading her "arms" over as many of the deceased as possibly.....it appears she is offering them shelter or comfort. At any rate, this is a magnificant composition! Very lovely, Ann!!
