  1. Someone went to a lot of trouble to save the tree house! I’d like to give them a ‘hero badge’. Love the drama of this shot, Carin, emphasized by your choice of black and white.

  2. Oh my goodness this is amazing! Not only that, but my reaction to it versus Cheryl’s is so marked that I have to laugh, My first feeling was horror. HOW could someone do something so drastic to a lovely tree that housed such a fine little house — and I am still wondering …. Is this an attempt to pollard the tree? Or did the people get mad at it, and at the children? Or, as Cheryl suggests, have they save the house in a tree well past its prime? In any case a stunning shot, and wonderful in black and white. Kudos Ms. Magtree.

    1. I’m pretty sure that tree is long dead and had to come down, noting that the other trees are in full leaf and flower but it isn’t, but presumably they thought the main trunk was still strong enough to support the treehouse. I love the two little birds perched on the “stumps” of branches. And that is such an Ontario house with its decorative brick edgings! Definitely a photo that tells a story.

      1. Those little birds! I saw them too. Almost my favourite part of the picture (though I saw them only when viewing it on screen)… this idea that nature continues despite what we build or take down… it finds a way to make lemonade.

  3. I just don’t know what to think – am I sad that that big tree had to come down or happy they saved the tree house? Or have they saved the tree house? Maybe it’s yet to come. In any event, Carin, you clearly captured a dramatic scene and black and white was THE right choice to convey the ambiguity.
