As beautiful as trees are when the leaves are in full bloom, it’s also quite interesting when there’s not a single leaf on its branches. So when I spotted this lone and seemingly desolate tree rising above the rocks, I couldn’t help but stare at it. As you can see in this image, there were plenty of other trees with plenty of leaves in the area. But this particular tree was all on its own. Standing tall with an unbreakable confidence. Knowing that its foliage will grow back one leaf at a time once the season is right. I just really enjoyed this confident tree so much that I spent quite some time just examining it before setting up for a shot. I actually have to remember to visit this particular tree again once its leaves start to bloom. That would make for a very fun comparison shot I think.
Inspired By Confidence
As of late, I’ve been writing a lot. Some stories but in the context of this photoblog, a lot of my personal thoughts. Whether it be about the photo itself or the adventure I was just on, I’ve just been in a writing mood. I’ve also been very receptive to scenes that evoke strength, positivity, and confidence. I’ve always been a positive and optimistic guy. I’m full of confidence in myself and just about anything I do. I suppose that’s more of my parents’ teachings that keep me so mentally tough. But despite that, I really have been enjoying scenes that promote that kind of confident thinking in my mind.
There’s just so much in this world that can easily bring any single person down. So these scenes are a nice reminder that there’s more to be proud of than there is to be down about. Perhaps I’m alone in that way of thinking. But I’m confident that there’s more good than bad in the world. And though I’m a positive kind of guy, it’s nice to have Mother Nature around to inspire good vibes and positivity.
