Situated along Kildaire Farm Road near the Heart of Cary, NC, thousands of people drive by these magnificent oak trees daily, and I think many folks never see them. They are twisted and contorted, and show the scars of generations of weather and storms.
They have been bothering me since the first of the year, when we moved our Keller Williams Realty offices into the Shannon Oaks office building. I have been wanting to shoot photos of their gnarly branches against the Carolina Blue sky before they leaf out this spring. Today I grabbed my camera and took advantage of the opportunity to collect a few million pixels.
65 degrees and blue sky. How can you beat that?
Some of these senior citizens have trunks that are 6 feet thick, and their boughs may span as much as 120 feet wide. And the greenery in the tops of a couple of them? Mistletoe.
