This tree with huge, twisting limbs and a gigantic canopy is my homage to Avatar.

It’s hard to show its vastness and contortions, even with a fisheye lens.

One can almost imagine the Na’vi living among its branches.

Its uppermost leaves mingle with those of other trees, contributing to a tropical feel.

This hometree has many stories to tell, I’m sure. Many living beings have sheltered in its shade, although probably none as exotic as the Na’vi.

Did you see the movie and like it? I loved it, not just for the awesome special effects and beautiful scenery but for its spiritual qualities and touching story. It was just a movie but I keep thinking about it days later so I guess I got my money’s worth.

  1. I am linking to Angie’s nominees this morning! And stopped by for a visit. Great job you are doing with this blog and what a treat to visit Arizona through your photographic eye. I lived there for 20 years roaming the deserts and high country with camera in hand. Please take some pix of the poppies! I just know with all the rain they should be spectacular this year!

    I am crazy about the tree images in this post. I have a “thing” for old, branching, fabulous trees like this one and it is a treat finding someone who finds them as fascinating as I do! And you captured the tree so beautifully. Every single image is just awesome!

    Happy Anniversary and many, many more!I will be back to visit!


  2. Yes I saw the movie and was very distracted by the excellent vision of the beautiful forest…. I enjoyed the story less than the eye candy… The tree you pictured is very beautiful…


  3. Great tree shots, Candace, but I absolutely love the cat eyes shot – fantastic!! I haven’t seen Avatar and have no real desire to do so. I’ll probably just wait for pay per view. 🙂


  4. Thanks for reading my poem and commenting. WordPress does have a curious way of suggesting related blogs. The photos are fantastic. What sort of camera and lens did you use. Was it a digital camera? I imagine most photography these days is done with digitals. I don’t know much about cameras. You seem to have a naturally gifted eye for composition.
