After the 9/11 attacks in the U.S., and several natural disasters, utility companies were instructed by the government to do everything possible to minimize disruption to energy distribution. Soooo..... in many cases that means cutting trees out of the way of power lines, or removing them altogether. Apparently this family, chose to have the tree merely "trimmed."
I shot this photo on Sycamore Road in Knox County, Ohio about a month ago. Today, the leaves have fallen and winter is here. The area is expecting an ice storm tonight, and heavy snow Friday into Saturday.
Everytime I drive that road, the odd shape of what's left of that tree just strikes me. I finally slowed enough to shoot three frames.
For other fantastic "sky" images, go to SkyWatch Friday. You never know what you will see when you look "UP!"
