Joy is a great teacher, but so is dispair. Wonder is a great teacher, but so is confusion. Hope is a great teacher, but so is disillusionment. And life is a great teacher, but so is death. To deny yourself any of those in any aspect is not experiencing life totally.
shot with a sony h2 and an extended zoom lens, so 18x magnification. actually a nice (little) camera. little control over white balance. the colors are real. the zoom does distort the perspective, and perhaps over saturates, so in that regards it is not what i actually saw. i am new to this site and unfamiliar with its workings. i also bring a old nikon film camera on my trips. i will upload a photo from that camera for comparisons, it is on my profile photos. thanks for the comments. john wartman
I'm guessing we won in a random drawing from all entries. I know it wasn't in the same league with all the wonderful pictures entered. I just thought it was a neat tree. I appreciate the chance to see all the great places people have been. Thanks Adam.
