Hermitage (#4)

Trees generally do not have much choice about sharing their images with me, causing me perhaps to be rather lax is asking and thanking them when camera and I receive their beauty.

To the tree portrayed below, I am particularly grateful. As a fallen one, its vulnerability is exposed and appears to have been for a long time. Branches outstretched, its surrender to eternity is serene and humble.

It is also not alone. With its arboreal community surrounding it, it is held in reverence among the living. May we so hold it too.
