Oh, how painfully sad this feels - both memories and future cut short.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

A powerful shot Alex! The stark face of the sheared branches is accentuated by the chain link fence! They seem to be imprisoned! ;-)

Excellent wood grain patterns and textures in the bark that you've captured here!! What a coincidence! I just did this with a buckthorn that was growing between the links of my chain link fence.
