THE WORTHY MARKS OF OLD AGE
A portrait of a Mountain Gall Oak (Quercus faginea subsp. alpestris), a survivor of setbacks, marked by the harshness of the extreme climate on this plateau, reminding one of the face of an elderly person. The quintessential fog separates the tree from its background to create depth and a ghostly atmosphere.
