Monster Trees

On the grounds of the Henry Clay estate (Ashland) in Lexington, many trees are hundreds of years old.  This first one has suffered from damage, but still is living.  It almost looks like a monster glaring down.  I think the second one looks like an elephant.  They should have a circus come to town and have it here.

Shot on the massive Soligor 500mm F8 mirror lens on my Canon T-90. Not the best picture of a bird, but notice that the background doesn’t have those out-of-focus rings that are characteristic of mirror lenses. It seems straight lines minimize the effect. I actually don’t mind the rings in some shots, but other times it distracts from the subject.
