A magical tree…

Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.

And lo, we came upon a magical tree tucked away in a quiet corner of Coconut Grove. An old, old kapok tree. A tree that dwarfs the little hobbit house behind it. A tree whose roots can hide an adult, and welcomes children around its feet. A tree that appears completely different from every angle you approach it. A tree that seems to have hands and feet and eyes that watch you watching it…A tree that has survived and continues to live and thrive and spark our imagination….

  5. That tree truly is magical, like something from a fairytale. And what stories it could tell! A perfect subject for the dreamlike touch you bring to the things around you, Sherry.

  6. It’s always a challenge to capture something like this — I struggle to figure out the right lens, distance, angle etc. to really convey the experience. Sometimes I get one I like….;-)

  7. Sherry! What an eye you have… a magnificent tree and your photos and words honor its age, its wisdom, its stunning beauty. Thank you! xo Mary Lou

  8. You sure did find a beauty…at first I thought you were in Yellowstone…but I find you were really in the enchanted forest..
    Nice photographing of that amazing trunk…

  9. That is a magical tree! Your images make me want to run my hands along the ribbon-roots and lose myself in its comfort. Thank you for sharing in the Photo-Heart Connection!
