I was attracted to the scene in my Tree Mountain piece by the sheer size of the canopy this group of trees provide. Stepping back to take it all in, I was fascinated with how tall they were and by the width of the covered area. This is another section along the driveway close to the mansion. With the prolific Spanish moss filling in most of the gaps between the leaves, it felt and looked like the top of a small mountain.
The massive, beautifully adorned tree in Perimeter is at the edge of the side yard to the East of the mansion. Following the gravel road that runs beside it into the middleground of the frame will take you to a corner. If you then turned right, you would be on the Alexander Pond Trail. We saw several alligators and lots of birds from the start of that trail, across the bridge, and to the woods along the Rice Field Dike.
