I took some pictures this weekend in the woods behind our house in Middle Tennessee and later on a drive in the country. Dead trees can be beautiful. It's all in how you look at them. Life is like that; reality is perception, and so we can see ugliness or beauty, depending on our point of view.

This tree fell across the stream behind our house last year.
The same tree viewed from from the other end
Another tree that fell a few years earlier
A tree we saw during a country drive
