A secret obsession
You have seen these trees before and you will, no doubt see them again. Near to our home there is a huge field that stretches as far as your eyes will take you. They are slightly elevated from us so they are also the horizon line. And among these fields, perfectly spaced are about five trees.
Matt tells me that these trees are a particular variety (I can't remember what kind) but that it is illegal to cut them down because they are rare.) He could be fooling me (he often does) OR I could have gotten my story wrong (which often happens) but the POINT of this lesson is, that having perfectly equidistant trees spanning the horizon surrounded by fields just entrances me. I love their simple beauty. So, I fear there will be many more pictures of these beauties! (Someday, I hope to take one of ALL five of them, but that would require a telephoto lens-something I don't have. :-) )
