So, there's this tree... And a sunset... Yeah, that's the picture of the day?

So I took a picture of a tree.  A tree at sunset, or maybe sun down, or whatever you want to call it.  The sun was down, and as I was drivng back from Southern California I pulled out a camera and snapped this picture.  What a beautiful tree...  Just sitting there on the hill, on the side of the road.


A wonderful tree made of steel, and wires, and mesh, and fake branches, and cell phone thingies on its branches...  Odd, but I guess better to look at than just a cell phone tower made of steel.
