Photo Hunters: Rare



You don't see too many smokin' trees around!! This was last summer, out in the field next to my sister's house. Lightening has struck this tree over and over again, and yet it still continues to stand!

Play along at Photo Hunter's.

Wow, that is rare! Amazing that it has been struck many times and still stands! Great photo. :)

That is rare and it's rare that it's still standing. I'd stay away from that tree in a storm :)

Oh, how scary! It could have gotten all the others on fire too! I am an outdoorsy person, so I love this kind of photo.

So goes the saying that lightning doesn't strike twice in one place. Fascinating how it has survived numerous lightning strikes.

Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend!

Well, I can say that I've never seen a smokin' tree before! Pretty cool! Glad you were able to capture it!

Wow! Great shot.

Still loving your no makeup pic. :-)

Doesn't the tree know that smoking is bad for the health ? But getting struck several times by lightening is indeed very rare !

mar said...

OMG, looks scary too. Happy weekend :)

Lu said...

That's kinda cool!

Is the smoke from the tree being hit with lightning again? I wonder what made it so susceptible or so strong!

Wow, that is rare indeed! I often saw trees when they're charcoal already...lightning you think?

Yup, that's rare alright. I've never seen anything like it. Great choice for The Hunt. Thanks for stopping by.

Deb said...

Wow! That's a great picture for the theme!

And they say that lightening doesn't strike twice? Statistically it is strange that that tree continues to get hit. I don't know much about the science of it attracking the strikes. It isn't taller. The whole thing is fascinating.

Great take on "rare". Amazing that this tree is still sanding after so many lightening strikes.

Thanks for visiting my Photo Hunters. I'm rather behind on my visiting, but am really enjoying "catching up". Have a great day.
