Why a Wonder: To me... this tree is a wonder because it's singularly unique. I've not seen another tree like this in the area. It would seem right at home in a place like New Zealand, Africa, or even the depths of Tolkien's imagination. It resides not in some far away epic place, but in a small park on the Hudson River in Westchester County, New York.
Where: Croton Point Park, New York.
When: December, 2020.
Photography: The tree is very wide, so attempting to get it in frame entirely needs an extreme wide angle lens, which loses some of the detail of its twisted nature. I chose to crop in and get close, allowing the menacing branches to bleed out of the frame.
