This tree was just outside of the train museum in Chatham Massachusetts (on Cape Cod).
I don’t know about you, but I see a face in the tree.

I thought that on the week of the 4th of July, that this image was appropriate.

I have been away from blogging for a few weeks with an overly busy schedule. I really have a fondness for the Sunday Trees challenge from Becca Givens on her blog ‘On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea‘, so this is an appropriate way to get back into my blogging.
I am going to be photographing a wedding in two weeks and I needed to test out my backup digital camera (the original Canon EOS Digital Rebel from 2003). So I charged up my batteries (I always have two batteries for every camera) and then went outside to see if the camera still functioned. The result is this picture of a Japanese Red Maple in my front yard.
The camera body is heavy compared to my Rebel T3i, and the shutter on the camera sounds sluggish in comparison, but the results came out just fine.
We purchased and planted this tree about seven years ago, and it has really flourished in the front of our house. I had to prune like crazy this year so that you could see the trunk and main branches through the heavy foliage. Now I just have to keep the tree trimmed back so it doesn’t take over the front sidewalk.
This picture was taken at a rest stop on US Route 81 in Virginia. The tree was just basking in the sunshine, waiting to be photographed.

This tree was located in a small park just off of the pier where our cruise ship, the ms Koningsdam, was docked. I had to snap a couple of photos for my regular Sunday Trees posts.
