I saw on some news/photography website yesterday that the famous ‘Philosophers Tree’ had been cut down by the farmer who owned the land where the tree was. If you have never seen a image of this tree, be sure to do a quick google and check it out, it is a wonderful subject, or at least it was.
Sadly, the reason for chopping it down, was ( it appears) partly due to the fact that so many photographers trespassed on his land..
Pretty sad state of affairs, but if that is the case, i cannot blame him, just shows you can love a tree to death I suppose.
So, in memory of the Philosophers Tree, here is my tribute, a shot taken when I was searching for those lone mangrove trees (https://plus.google.com/+GerardBlacklock/posts/QcPubRyxLiS).
it was also between getting rained on, eaten by mozzies and contemplating just getting the car and grabbing a coffee instead.. i would have, but the coffee shop was not open yet 🙁
Exif love 😉
