Fliers - Lgood

May 8, 2011

Sorry that I'm so late posting today, but after the week's worth of wedding festivities, I was late getting back home from Austin. However, it was well worth every minute, and the wedding and reception was super. Thanks to everyone for your kind comments.

This is a photo of a young girl laying on the giant trunk of a huge Oak tree that blew over a couple of weeks ago when we had 80 MPH straight line winds. How sad to loose this fabulous old tree. It was like loosing an old friend. Best viewed in the larger sizes.

This tree is in the Getzendaner Park in Waxahachie, Texas. I'm sure this tree is well over 100 years old. There are many more this size that are thankfully still standing in the park. It's an amazingly wonderful park.

I processed this shot with Topaz spicify filter.

Check out these other two links to more clearly see the size of this huge old tree - it was a giant. Everyone that sees the loss of this beauty have tears in their eyes.
