I was in the middle of Nowhere, Mississippi, taking photographs for a website relating to the Hunting Industry when I crept through the trees, just beyond its line and stepped into this magnificent area. Standing there, in all of it's superiority and grace, was this tree! I'm guessing it to be at least, if not well over, 500 years old. I say this in comparison to the same type of trees back home on our property that are known to be 100 - 125 years old. This photograph does not do this tree justice in showing you it's size. Photographing its limbs required me to back into the wood line and arch backwards!
It sits, perfectly, and untouched in a rounded out clearing in the middle of the woods, in the middle of no where! I gasped for breath upon stepping into this circle. Oh, and the moon was full on this particular evening and as I left the property, I glanced into the wood line and with the full moon directly over it......it was visible through the trees seemingly, glowing.
