Taken two weekends ago in the parking lot for Fulton Mansion in Fulton, Texas. We were arriving to take a tour of the mansion when a storm front rolled in and I grabbed a few shots before the rain started. To me this oak tree was amazing, not so much for its size, but for the intricate patterns formed by its limbs. It reminds me, except for its size of course, of an ancient Bonsai tree.
