Every day during the last month, I’ve walk by this beautiful tree… a moss covered oak growing along a quiet road. The first time I saw it, I knew I had to photograph it. And I also knew that I needed some rain to enliven the multicolored moss and lichens on its buttress. And tonight it rained. A beautiful soft rain perfect for capturing the mood of the tree. This is my first attempt at a panorama, but not my last… and certainly not my last study of this marvelous tree.
