Here is a wierd floating tree. Notice that there is no trunk under it. In fact, the highway is under it! See if you can figure it out. This does not exactly fit the challenge but it does make you go "Hunh!"

Nikon D100, 28-80mm, clouds!

It looks like it's been chopped about by the local council over the decades so that busses and lorries don't crash into the branches. You see it all the time here. We've got trees only a few feet away from lots of roads so they have to be chopped about. It's amazing how trees can put up with it. Imagine if I chopped off your arm.:shock:

Cal, this fits the challenge perfectly. It certainly doesn't match other trees or our perception of trees. Definately a double-take! Fantastic! :-)

woah! that's crazy!

there seems to be large branches reaching over, hide them, and you'll really confuse people!

nicely done

Vito, I tried that and it really added to the effect but I thought "that is a lie" so I undid it.

Yeah - cal's right - on this one, the "whoa" should be a natural. :-)An unnatural natural. I'll go ahead and make mention of that in the challenge post. :-)
