Oak Tree 01


I was driving towards Mt. Diablo (outside Walnut Creek, CA) when I discovered this California oak tree. While I was photographing the tree several bikers came along the road and I was asked not just once, what is here so interesting? It looks like an ordinary tree and the state of the art of a photographer is to see and photograph beyond the ordinary. Yes, it is just an oak tree, surrounded by other oak trees on a partially cloudy day and still, I also passed by this tree and decided to turn around and photograph it. Somehow this tree interested me and I wanted to make it stand out. This is exactly the challenge for this week. Pick a tree, take a snapshot and then start looking and see if you will find some great images.

Enjoy and have fun with this exercise!
