Despite Adversity

Along the south shore of Lake Superior, a place with very harsh conditions, stands this tree on a little spit of sand and rock. You can tell from its broken and twisted branches that it has no had an easy life. Yet it stands despite those adversities.

There were some photographic adversities as well. I was on a moving boat in harsh mid-day sun. Nonetheless the character of this tree was worth capturing.

P.S. The title link is to the wikipedia article for the song Mercy, Mercy, Mercy. I recommend listening to Canonball's version so that you can hear is introduction about adversities.
