I like the way the two larger trees look like dance partners, which is what they seem even more so when the winds blow hard. They are indeed missing many branches because the wind blows very hard very often over this part of the Virginia mountains. We had a tornado once that took down a swath of trees hundreds of yards wide right through the forest, uphill and downhill, across the stream and uphill again! We lost a road to erosion. Neighbors had to be med-vac’d in helicopters out of the hollow.
