Still life with trees by helenhall

Still life with trees

Still life - "a carefully arranged group of objects". I claim this as a still life since I consider the trees to have been very carefully arranged. Being in flood water gives them a kind of out of context look, I think the arrangement has a static, lifeless feel to it.

Or, in other words, I took only this image today, and thought it was about time I posted one image on the day that I took it, so I have convinced myself that it fits the Flash of Red challenge for this week.
I think it does fit the challenge, it is all certainly very "still" and no doubt it is "life". Hope the flood waters are not too close to you.

An environment that trees don't like. Otherwise we would see them in water. So a most unusual shot then.
