WPC – Abandoned (2)


A lone Blue Oak that has provided shade for cattle for as long as I can remember, well-before we hauled horses in gooseneck trailers. We still park and unload them beside the old tree to the gather the pasture, but it’s just not the same. Its limbs twisted within one another while alive, it must have been like a house of cards when the high winds came on August 18, 2013, to leave them resting against its trunk.

  6. This is one of my favorite subjects and you did a nice job of capturing it, although with a different twist than most I’ve seen. The explanation was welcome.

    As for me, for this theme I would normally go after old abandoned farm houses and barns, but this time I decided to do something a little bit different. You’re welcome to come and see my take on the matter. 🙂

  8. Interesting tree…I wish I could see what it looked like before it broke apart…


    • A broad Blue Oak with many canopied limbs that nearly touched the ground, some just right to tie a horse in the shade. You could ride up to it, surprised to find thirty head inside. Taken for granted for so many years, I was shocked when I came upon the shambles, leaves still green. I know we have some photos of parts of it with cattle. I’ll work on your wish, dig around to see what I can find in a larger format. Thanks for your comment.
