The Tree

The Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: The Tree
The Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Joy
Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Item with two M’s

I was in a dilemma. Should I go down to the bottom part of my property and see what had happened there with the fire. I am glad I did as I found somethings that had survived and gave my joy, one of which was the big Tallowwood tree. You would need three or four people encircling the tree, arms outstretched and hands touching to gauge it’s size. The tree is about forty meters tall.

I know it’s not strictly black and white but the burnt forest has a bit of a sepia tone about it.
