Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

The Tree of Damocles

On my hike at Franconia Notch, this tree was hanging in mid-air, caught up by the branches of two or three trees growing over the river bed.

It looks like the spring run-off, or one of the intense storms that sent a surge down the river, made this tree vault straight up, where it now hangs.

I didn’t capture the full view with my camera, but I tried to shoot where the broken tree’s branches were caught up with the live tree branches above the middle of the river bed.
