We are bare framework standing immobile against the elements. Bleached white like the bones of a long dead dinosaur, our roots run deep, anchoring us to the earth. We are a monument to perseverance, endurance, unbending stubbornness.
There is beauty in our austerity. Stripped of all outer trappings, we withstand the ages, adversity and tragedy. Our strength remains unrivaled.
Storm-ravaged, time-worn, sun-burnt, still we stay, defending our homes against all enemies at our gate.

“stronger than we imagine” is what I felt after reading it.
The picture is superb, haunting and beautiful all at once.
Nice take on the Monument theme! I like it. I also like the treatment you gave these stalwart old relics of the past. I occasionally first-person my photos, as in my treatment of last week’s theme: Threshold.
That has a great dystopian/ghost town feel. I love this.
Looks somewhat like a Banyon Tree? Lot of character in those old structures.
