my sky - Sherwood Island, CT


This tree fascinated me.
I took several photos
as it posed lifting
its branches to the sky.
I liked this one the best.
Sherwood Island, Westport CT.

  6. For sure the tree is attractive with its bare branches lifted seemingly joyful into the air. ;-)

  18. Oh my gosh. That sky, the water and the trees on the horizon....looks exactly like the view from the Gwynn's Island beach.

  21. I know that tree. So this post touches my heart in a special way. I know that path. That light. And the view toward that place you call home. Beautiful. Wow.

  22. I LOVE pictures of solitary trees. This is a good one. I love the nakedness of the branches and how the sun's rays are reaching down toward it. Excellent. I can see why you were captivated!

  23. It's a beauty, alright. It reminds me of a spot along Lake Ontario.. not terribly far from Frank's.

  29. Shimmery. A place that invites you to go for solitude. Or a place to spend time with someone else in "companionable silence." Love the quietude in this image, Daryl.

  30. I love a lone, bare tree. Add water and sky? Nothing better.

  31. I came here tonight looking for a peace globe I thought I'd missed and stumbled upon this post about Sherwood Island. It brought back fond memories for me.

    I visited there a couple years back while on a trip to CT. I stopped and was alone - standing right there - facing Manhattan on a cold windy day - and thinking about the lives lost, the smoke that was seen.....It is a simple and glorious park.
    Thanks for posting this and reminding me. I took pictures also but lost them!
