This pine, short and difform, looks really likes he wanted to be a bonzai... This land was devasted by fire and also by mooses, who eats the leaves and the wood. It gave a surrealistic look to the scene, and this little fellow add to the strangiesness.... Glad he was on my path.

Bonjour Robert,

Très belle trouvailles, une place à découvrir. Merci de partager cette photo.


Hi Robert,
A strange looking tree, but it also indicates the strenght of it and the willingness to survive. Good to see that there is a lot of young undergrowth visable. A beautiful simple composition, with excellent colors.

Hehe, this is a great capture! Its gotta be one of the strangest pine trees Ive ever seen. We have a lot of pine here in Norway as well, and I know they can take many peculiar forms.
This one really looks like hes trying to become a bonzai tree, as you say - funny!


Hi Robert,
A very unique and strange pine tree. Good eye in seeing this scene!
