[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a 55-year-old apple tree with its gnarled trunk and branches which reminds me of calligraphy. It has just bloomed and will have apples in June. The winds have gotten it bent over, but it hangs on and blooms
every spring. The birds sing, the squirrels sit on its many branches. I have sat many summers in the shade this tree has made.

A Poem written by Adine Cathey

THE OLD TREE HAD BEEN STANDING
BY THE OVER-GROWN ORCHARD FENCE,
TIME HAD BEEN MOVING ON FOR YEARS
ITS MEMORY WAS GETTING A LITTLE FADED AND DENSE.
PERHAPS IT WOULD JUST TAKE A NAP
WAIT OUT THE SLEET AND RAIN,
FOR ONCE AGAIN IT WOULD BE SUNNY DAYS
AND PINK BLOSSOMS AND LOVELY SPRING.
A Poem written by Adine Cathey

Hi Muhammad,i don't know if a black and white pic is good for treknature,maybe sure to try this experiment on TE....but i like your work and your idea,a very old apple tree in a black and white like a metaphore of its long life..well done and great poeme too! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Black and white is the most strong photograhic medium,with lots of details,you can see in color.
Great picture in all its aspects Muhammad.
Remember that black and white is the cradle of photography, any issue.
Thanks for sharing.
