And the Trees....

So I decided to take a different tack tonight.   After taking some pictures of the birds, I decided to go back to my car to get my littler lens.  There were a few things I saw that I thought would make cool pictures but my bigger lens is too much lens to do it.
Well this shot was taken with my big lens.  I wanted more of the scene in the picture though.  I wish the water were a little smoother.  Oh well.
As you can see, the Huron is a little higher than it should be.  Normally this would all be grass.
I was going to try for something abstract.  So I shot up into the tree.  A few years ago, I took a glass called Fractal Geometry which dealt with the math behind Fractals.  I wonder what formula would generate this one?
As I was wandering around the tree, I decided to take a shot looking up the trunk.  It's amazing how things from different angles can look abstract.
The other tree from a different angle.  This is the shot that prompted me to go back and get my other lens.  I like the reflection of the tree in the water.  I'm not so keen on the people in the background though.
Another attempt at fractals....
I wonder how well this would work in black and white?
For this one, I was closing in on a trunk.  I kind of wish it were a little more in focus though.
Same with this one.  I kind of like it though.  Might try messing around in black and white with it.
The water crossing the path.
Looking up another trunk.
Looking out across the pond.  Again, I wish the water were smoother.
One last shot across the pond.  I do like the looks of Gallup.

Amazing what you can get out of merely a tree...
