Odd Shots Monday--tree

Click the logo in the sidebar. It will take you to the Odd Shots details.

Sorry folks, I have to make the exception to my own rule this time. I have a second photo that makes clear what is odd about the first. To start with, take a look at this forest picture from our hike last Monday.

Probably everyone but Paulie thinks we're nuts for hiking in that snow. She understands. But that is not what is odd--that we would go out hiking in many feet of snow cover. Do you see what is odd in that photo? It doesn't show as well as it did in real time.

That tree looked perfectly normal at the top. Nice green needles--lovely form. I don't know where it fell from or how it is hanging. There don't seem to be any matching stumps or snags.

But there it is.

Wow! That IS really odd! Did you see that when you took the picture? (I understand the hiking in the snow...lol)

Mine's up, such as it is... not really odd, but odd as I could get this week! :)

Sharon said...

That IS odd! I don't think that the hiking through the beautiful woods is odd though.

Mine is up.

Strange - Perhaps because it was in the middle of a forest it thought no one would notice :)

Mine is up.

Hello Katney!

This is really an odd and a very interesting shot I think.

Very strange. Your powers of observation are keen ~ apparantly you CAN see the forest for the trees! ;-)

My odd shot is up too.

Blue said...

Thats strange with the tree hanging there, maybe after the snow melts you will find why.
I liked your mountain scenes.
We come down to Seattle twice a year but never go to the Space Noodle but like Pike market.

imac said...

Ah what a tree odditity that is.

Mines up now.

Paulie said...

Good thing you had an arrow pointing to it because I would not have sen it. I guess all the moisture kept it from drying out or an animal recently ate the bottom of it?

(What can I say when you break you own rule. . . )

Mine is up too. . . now I am going back to bed. I will visit around tomorrow. . . I mean later today.

Thanks for the award that I also got from Lili -- I posted on sidebar of recievng it from you also. You already had it so I didn't give to you . . .

but this tree case is really interesting. how it is possible...

Dirty Knees said...

Very odd, Katney.

But I agree with the others that hiking in the snow is not odd at all. Well, not for me at least. I've been doing it all winter long in the regional forests near where I live. It's a challenge but you wouldn't believe the things you might see, right!

Daryl E said...

Mine's up!

Raesmom said...

Lilli & Nevada said...

Very Odd great that you found that from the photo it almost look like there is a seat there.
Yup know all about the snow walking

Dragonstar said...

Hi, mine's up at last!

That's decidedly odd - just hanging about, I suppose. (LOL)
Maybe it wanders around and visits relatives.

On this occasion I think it was necessary for you to post the second pic. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise!

katydidnot said...

very odd indeed.

katydidnot said...

Gloria said...

That is so weird! But neat :)

My odd shot is up, but it's only odd in a way.... didn't take a lot of photos this week because of school commitments.
