The Old Tree by the Lake

This one here and that one over there look like sentries, don’t you think? Standing guard so nothing can pass this point on either side.

Or maybe they’re posts of some invisible energy field that runs across the land and the water.

Or maybe they’re just the remains of a couple of trees not willing to leave the land where they’ve stood for so long.

    They’re whatever you want them to be… I like the idea of an invisible energy field though. 🙂

      Imagination has no bounds, Chris. I’m seeing the trees as connection points on the Ley Line Network.

        That’s what had occurred to me too.

    Interesting thoughts Tom.

    Maybe they are the casualties of unseen battles. 🙂 ❤

      Could be, Prenin. There are many stories to be told.

    Great shot and suggestion, Tom. Full of mystery and energy. And now from the bottom of the foreground tree, I see a dragon’s head pointing upwards, with closed eyes and a slightly gaping mouth complete with teeth. Also a small ear pointing downwards and even a little crest above his head (left bottom side of tree). Oooh, spooky! But in a nice fun way 🙂

      I can see the dragon too, now Halim. There’s more to this tree than meets the eye! 🙂
