The producers of Harry Potter called. They want their signature tree for the promotion posters back.

You captured great mood here. I can almost feel the air get sucked out of my lungs as I take it in.

The black & white really works here with tree branches against the lighter sky. Much more dramatic.

It feels desolate but strong, as the title implies. Especially good in black and white. I love gnarly tree branches.

Oh, I'm booking my flight to Raleigh! ;-) (I wish, since I suspect it's much warmer there than here!)

Happy WW!

Looks like the beach in winter. I miss seeing the ocean. We live inland now. I never thought in my life I would live so far from the beach.

You set quite a mood with this shot... eerie and desolate as some of your earlier posters mentioned!

Survival certainly comes at a cost!

Happy WW!

Beautiful picture. It reminds me of the scene in the junglebook where mowgli meets the voltours just before the tiger comes after him.

So strong yet ghostly. I love these trees.

I would not want to be bald if I'm a survivor. But then, sometimes.... there's no choice. :(
