ok, so it's the shell of an old tree But the story behind this tree as told to me by my Great Gradma is that this tree was struck by lightning about 40 years ago..give or take a few years. I took this picture this summer. Two weeks after taking the picture it fell apart in a strong wind. :cry: I did it regular and in black and white. Let me know what ya think. I welcome comments. I may not know what your saying. All the technical stuff confuses me sometimes.. Which one do you like best and why? I like the black and white better.. Can't say why I do though. By the way. All my pics are digital. And my camera is Kodak DC 3400 .....2.0 megapixel..Not really and expensive camera but I'll keep it..
