Pine Trees and Shadows
This is my backyard. We have quite a few of these very tall pine trees. They are so tall and thin that when it storms, they actually blow from side to side, which can get a little scary! Once during an ice storm, one of our younger pines, was so heavy with ice that it was laying on the ground. I thought that it had broke off, but it wasn't. A few days after the ice melted, the tree sprang back into shape. It's doing fine since, just a small arc in it's trunk. That was also one of our pines that was hit with lightning, that I showed a few posts back.
I like the way these gigantic trees cast shadows in my yard!
