This great old tree lived a short ways from my house. (Sorry for the poor quality, it was a rainy, cloudy typical PNW day in Spring a couple years ago when I took these with my phone.)
It leaned considerably to the west and a bit to the south, with nary a branch or twig growing on the east side of the entire tree. The height was impressive, and the trunk was quite thick. I wondered about it leaning; you can tell a bit that the whole trunk had started to tilt. She towered over a parking lot and business.
She was breathtaking. Stark. Spirited and uniquely beautiful.
