This week Tree Tuesday comes to us courtesy of Opus who took these photos on Mt. Batchelor near Bend, Oregon. The first shot shows just how windswept the location is with a tree that could only manage to grow in a single direction. The next two photos further demonstrate the harshness of the landscape in images of rock, scrub and the carcasses of long dead trees. I find the set quite poignant, especially the last shot showing how the remains of a once proud giant breaks down to feed a whole new generation of trees. Thanks for sharing, Opus.
