Giant Oak

Giant OakGiant Oak Hosted on Zooomr

I took my daughter for a walk in Helen Putnam Regional Park today mainly just to enjoy the weather. Of course I brought my camera and put on the new Hoya Polarizing filter I got last week. I came across this massive, old oak tree that had a lot of huge branches literally growing sideways, touching the ground. It was an amazing tree that I failed to capture adequately.
Anyway, this was a decent shot of one of the branches.You can get a sense of the size of the braches from this shot. I was standing on the ground, looking down the length of the branch. The diameter of the branch was well over a foot. I have several more shots of the tree; if anyone is interested I can do a supplemental post. The tree is amazing. If you can get to Helen Putnam park, it is on the Panoram trail.
