The Old Forest Tree

I asked my daughter Abrie to give this picture a name and this is what she came up with, "The old forest tree". She's pretty right on except for the fact that it isn't in a forest. I mean it is a tree and it is old, so it would only make perfect sense to name it the the old forest tree, right? Gotta love kids!

I ran the Old Toy Camera action on this image that Toni from Blueberry Lane photography was talking about on her blog, then I added some texture and burned the edges just a bit.

Great picture, it should be framed and put in your new huge home you will have on the hill with your huge backyard and big play set, and trampoline. Oh yeah, that picture Will be huge above your mantil.:) And we will be sitting on your backyard swing, sipping lemonade, watching blake and caleb up to no good and Brynlee and Macey playing in the sandbox. It will be wonderful!!!

The color and texture are perfect for this shot. I love how the sun is shining through the tree branches. This tree looks like he has endured much through the years!

Ginnie,
Just saw your comment on my blog. Can't wait to have you join our Utah Peas group when you move back here! Do you know where in Utah you're going to live?

Ginnie said...

We don't know where we're going to live yet. Hopefully we will be able to get that figured out sometime in the next 4 months.
