Description

I call this Dave Allen's tree not because he was the first to photograph it, nor because he will be the last, but because his shot of this particular tree on the eve of Hurricane Irene has done what I imagine all landscape photographers hope their shots will--set a benchmark in time for others who seek out and find this tree to compare their work to. In fact, the evening I took this particular picture, I met an individual who was photographing this tree with the explicit purpose of seeing if he could match or beat Dave's shot! I've traveled with Dave to places both near and relatively far and upon exchanging business cards amateurs and professionals alike show immediate recognition of his particular shot of this tree. I was lucky enough to get a shot or two of this location for myself as the tree itself is seemingly being swallowed by an encroaching sea at a geographic location that to my eye appears to be experiencing extremely dynamic and rapid change since Irene.
