Photographer's Note

This photo had just won the First prize in "I Shot it" photo competition - Premium category

This photo was taken during noon time the lighting was harsh and there are not much color in the surrounding. Hence, I decided to convert into B&W and using high contrast to show the fine details of the dead tree, the living tree in the background is a bonus.

Golden Euphrates Poplar 胡楊 the Chinese love and adore this tree for it resilience characteristic. There is a saying that this tress survive for a thousand years and it will not fall for another 1000 years and even it has fallen it will not rod for another 1000 years.

I walk around this dead before I discovered this angle the dead tree trunk look like a dinosaur feeding on the vegetation

This picture also reflect "Ying & Yang" i.e life and dead
