Weekly photo challenge — On Top

As soon as I saw the title of the weekly photo challenge from WordPress — «On Top» — I thought of a picture I took a few years ago. It was I picture I had to take; it’s not especially good or one that I’m very proud of … but it had to be done.

We like to go to a place called St. Martins every now and then. It’s a touristy place, a beach with big caves in the sandstone rocks. When we do, we usually take the scenic route. It runs partly through woods, but also along the seashore and through little villages.

There, in the middle of nowhere, in the woods with not a house in sight for miles, was this really tall spruce … with a red rooster placed on top of it?! The fist time, I didn’t really believe my eyes. Next time it was ‘confirmed’and the third time I finally got out of the car and took a photo of it.

It’s intriguing, most of all because the spruce is so tall! I don’t get it … why, and how did they get up there?! Either way, here it is!

  1. Hmmm, someone with a good buzz on and more guts than brains, a dash of good luck tossed in for good measure. Now it’s an even better lightning rod.
