I love trees, shrubs with a sense of humor ...

Leora said...

Good eye! Some people force their plants to look like that. Nature does a much better job.

Mojo said...

We seem to be on a similar wavelength today. Nice natural Bonsai!

how cool is that?

Jill said...

Great photo - what a funny looking tree!

Stan said...

Amazing what contortions can occur in nature. I've seen similar trees that were warped by heavy snow.

Terri said...

Great capture - fascinating tree. If it could talk....

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

A very intresting tree, from this angle looks like a crooked path into the wilderness, perhaps for a creepy crawly, winged insect or bird.

Sande said...

No how cool is that. A tree with individuality.

catsynth said...

That is a unique shape on that tree, almost a perfect wave back and forth.

SandyCarlson said...

Like a snake rising to the sound of music!

Beth F said...

Oooh. Daring to be different! There is a definite tree theme today.

Patti said...

Nature is so artistic! Great photo.

Not playing WW, just peeking in.

Jientje said...

It looks as though it has suffered but never gave up, and started a new life after that. Cool.

moneythoughts said...

This tree reminds me that we all march to a different drummer. This tree definitely does.

Flea said...

Oh very cool. Quite Dr. Seuss.

Pat said...

What a cool tree, and a very resourceful tree, too, like The Little Engine That Could.

Julia Smith said...

A quizzical conifer...

Genny said...

That is just too cool. Fun to see :)

That is such a cool shot, Robin! What an interesting tree. Usually when they grow like that, it's because there was something they had to grow around. That doesn't appear to be the case. Makes you wonder what caused it. :D

Zen said...

A fighter against the harsh weather..cool picture.

Maria Berg said...

That is fun to see, MB
