Horse and an Old Tree


I keep returning to this farm and it rewards me with interesting situations very often. Today I have noticed this horse, motionless in front of the old tree as if mesmerised by the sound of the leafs in the wind. I had the time to stop the car, setup my tripod, take 3 photographs and the horse still has not moved. Only when I folded the tripod down it walked away as if the photo session was over and it did its job.

Treebeard meets Mr. Ed – now that is the second story in this photograph. Look carefully and it looks like the tree is extending its branches like hands over the horse in some mystical ceremony and the remorseful steed has no option but to listen.
