The Magic Tree

The Lee's Summit Magic Tree

A misty, foggy night at the Lee's Summit, Missouri, Magic Tree. This is a lone tree in a field at the very border of Lee's Summit, Missouri. The land owner does this as a service to the community, allowing each visitor to assign their own meaning to the experience. The halo effect is caused by moisture on my lens during the fog of the evening.
