//tree growing from a lone rock on the Ligurean coast. (Canon 30d)

As I sat in the back seat of the car with my camera resting on a lifted knee, my uncle sped along the winding coastal highway outside of Portofino.  We were on our way to S. Margherita Ligure when he suddenly slows down (which in European terms, is still too fast) and turns to me, pointing at this tree. 

"Look at that brave sap... growing out of a rock! Imagine! It managed to set roots in that very spot! Take a picture of that! Do you see it?" 

I raise my camera, and sure enough there is the tree, growing out of a rock which is jutting out of the water. 

"How lonely," I reply, drowned out by clack of the camera shutter.  A moment later, it's already too far behind us to see anymore.
