The Olive Tree

Olive Tree at Sunset, Yalikavak, Bodrum, Turkey

The olive tree..... Known throughout history as the tree of wisdom, hope, peace, light, fertility, health, wealth, and balance, among other things.

Sunset is my most favorite time of day... always, anywhere.  I took this in Yalikavak in Bodrum, Turkey.  This lone olive tree was standing there enduring the wind.  It wasn't the best sunset that day, but when I leaned to the left just a tiny bit, the sun hid behind this tree.  I was amazed at the outcome.

But I guess that is life.  Sometimes if you slightly change your viewpoint, you see things in a completely different light.
