I've captured trees "hanging on for dear life". They have extended their roots in an unnatural way in order to survive and keep their balance.
In photo #1 you see a mature tree on the edge of a precipice, its roots extending above ground and "backwards" in order to find hold further away from the edge of the mountain. If you look carefully, to the left of the trunk, the ground had already eroded away leaving one root hanging in the air.
In photo #2 the mature tree is getting pushed over by the boulder and it is fighting for balance by extending roots above ground, across the rock in order to find hold on the other side.
Did I capture these trees because their situation resonated with me personally through my subconscious? Do they represent my life where I have established new roots far away from where I grew up? Living life on the edge? Getting pushed to the limit? Maybe.
Or, maybe I just thought they were interesting :-)
