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….

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.
You’re too sweet, Mary Lou. This tree captured me, I think….
Hey Laurie, these are not HDR images but I am doing some HDRs on other images. Not the real garish stuff though 😉
So glad you enjoyed the post, Sheryl-Elaine!
Thanks, Cheryl. I hope to go to Yellowstone some day….
Thanks, Edith. Getting one I liked was a process, but an enjoyable one.
Yes, Kathryn. That whole neighbourhood had a real fairy tale feel to it!
Thanks, Kathy. I will always remember this tree. It really captured my imagination….
Thanks, Tina. You must have seen some amazing ones on your travels!
Thanks, Kat. I’m glad I was able to get across some of its textural beauty….
Thanks, Kristeen. I probably could have taken 50 more shots…
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….;-)
And I was looking for peacocks! I wonder about its history too. I’m sure some children have discovered that. Thanks Gracie.
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
The old historic trees of Florida can be so magical!!! Are you doing HDR Photography now?

Beautiful tree, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of one we saw in South America. I took lots of shots but like yours better 🙂
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!
Gee wow wee –mesmerizing and fascinating — what a find.. your photo shots bring out the tree perfectly!
Fabulous! Gorgeous and amazing tree, very well captured. And you’re right, it does feel like that house must belong to hobbits.
This is an incredible find, Sherry. I wonder how old this tree is. Looks like a perfect place for Hide and Seek.
