On the farm where I was raised, there stood 2 of the largest oak trees I have ever seen. Both are sadly gone now.
I posted an image of the other oak a couple of months ago. This particular tree gave shade and shelter to our horses and other's livestock for centuries before we came to the land. The photo was taken with film in 1965 with my first small camera. I am in the process of scanning in my old photos because time has begun to deteriorate the film.
I am certain that my fascination with trees and nature came from these early days growing up with the horses on our small family horse farm.
