The Tenacious Little Tree

I photographed this little tree no more than 3 ft high, hanging on the side of a rock face in East Sooke Regional Park, on Vancouver Island nearly 20 years ago. The last time I visited the park, the tree was still there, not much bigger, through stormy days and quiet days the tree continues to thrive. For some people life is like that little tree, hanging on and not letting go, where we have a tenacious toe hold on a this rocky ledge we call life, battered by storms but on occasionally enjoying the finer days too.

I like this image. Even though it is dark/moody, that tree to me represents life hanging on, as you say. The softness of the water and sky adds a sense of hope, too.
