How Beautiful Can Be an Old Tree?

How Beautiful Can Be an Old Tree?

Old Tree Brazil

Bent by the wind, or maybe just by the weight and age, resting on the white sand, this old tree I spotted along a secluded beach in the wonderful region of Cearà, in North Eastern Brazil, made me think of an elderly man, his face covered of wrinkles and full of expression.

I couldn’t help finding this old tree beautiful, wondering about its history, the people who have stopped by over the years, the fishermen who might have rested nearby. Looking at the tangles of its trunk, as beautiful as the carvings by a great artist, I realized once again how nature never stops surprising me, with its life, shapes and colors.

To many people an old tree might be just… well… an old tree. To me, it was one of the many signs of nature’s beauty and perfection.

    Amazing photography, the palm trees in-between the arch of the tree makes the photo! Great stuff.

    To me it looks like an young woman, trying to manage her dress in the wind!

    I love how the coconut trees swaying in the background are framed in the bend of the old tree. Sweet shot!

    The most beautiful image I’ve seen in a while…better yet that it’s from Brazil 🙂

    That is a beautiful tree! I love how it creates an arch and frames the beach behind it.
