The photo above is my rather unconventional entry in Rodposse’s Flora Foto Contest entitled Roots. Rodposse is quite the promoter. If Rodposse does not become famous as he would like, then there is no justice in this world.
But how hectic this has been! When I saw the scoop on his photo contest yesterday, I raced out to the village of La Huerta once again to attempt still more photographs around the huge tree there, El Sabino. (One cannot take a photograph of the entire tree. It is too big.) I have been attempting to photograph that tree for years now. In the process of offloading the 81 new photos that I took later in the day, I lost all the photos related to the tree and was left with only a couple chicken pictures. So I drove out there again this morning. I wish I had had more time to work on this photo this afternoon. As it is, I got my entry off to Rodposse just in time, the 29th entry out of 29. This sort of pace is not consistent with my lifestyle.
If you really do like the photo, then click here and “Like” it at Rodposse’s blog. Otherwise, I am going to be embarrassed by the other entrants, people who have friends. While you are at it, you can look at some of the amazing photos of flowers and flora-related scenes that constitute the other entries and “Like” them, too.
I am kinda fond of this one, but I did not have time to take that goddamned hose out of the photo and was not really inclined to anyway.
