Travels bring along memories, don’t they? Last month, when I got back from a wonderful road trip, I carried plenty of moments captured on my cell phone and my handy Sony camera. It was only during the last weekend that I got the time and the opportunity to have a look at them. I thought of sharing this for today’s #TreeLove post because it has something special for me.
This image reminds me of that evening when I stood on the deck of the hotel, where we had just arrived a few hours before. For some strange reason, this tree seemed to grab my attention. There was something very striking in the way it stood, tall and upright in spite of being a lone tree, away from the rest of its kind, as if it was ready for any fate, that came its’ way.
Have you ever wondered how, some people appear to be so complete in themselves, even when they seem to be walking alone? This tree seemed to me a bit like that.
Below, I could see the rolling hills, over which was spread out the beautiful town of Ooty, our destination for the next three days. After a while, I decided to step out for a walk. As I went up to the tree, the sky turned from a pale yellow to a sombre pink, while daylight gently gave way to dusk.
Something very serene and peaceful swept over me as I spent those quiet minutes standing beside the lone tree. Trees have souls, don’t they? I can tell you, they do.
Would you like to play along? If you do, all you have to do is post a picture of a tree and link it back to her post. Let’s appreciate Nature around us!
