Nature, Not in Nature

I saw this photograph when I was leaving the shopping center in Garden City.  It is seeing nature in a way that we don't normally see it - the shapes of the trees and their shadows are in stark relief against the painted concrete wall.  Usually the forms would be lost against that of other trees and confusing backgrounds of the forest.  It's kind of fun to try and see which of these dark lines are the trees, and which are the shadows.

If you had not said it was set against a concrete wall, I thought I was looking out to the water...bsk
