It seemed to me that this image is an inner landscape too, not just for me, but for all sentient life, sometimes. Part of our journey.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

I love the twists and tangles of the branches in this nice composition Joyce. Will the naughty cat find his way down this time!

@Doug: Hi, and there has been no repeat. I just hope he is inside somewhere or sheltered from the cold. I bet that he is. The whole neighborhood is now in on this caper and his story. We are looking out for him, lucky kitty really. I just hope he can trust enough to be helped.

Pierre from Mâcon, France

Nice shot !
and nice climbing cat !

@Pierre: We had to rescue him. I should have explained in text or referred to post of a few days before.

Martine from bousval, Belgium

Oui très bien vu avec ce chat!!!!

. . and, luckily, the cat safely made the journey down ! . . or, is he an attention-seeker and gone up there again ?!

@Ronnie 2¢: No, I have not seen him since. This is good and then it's a little uncomfortable feeling too. But the whole neighborhood is not aware of him.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

We would see some trouble in our journey...

@Hiro: It is part of life.

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

hope the cat got down ok

@Jules: He did. This is a return to those images taken the day of the rescue.

Don from Spokane, United States

I like the intertwined limbs that make this shot interesting. The kitty looks rather content, but getting back down may be a questionable endeavor.

@Don: He did get down. We had to rescue him that one time. I liked the surround in this image too Don. Thanks for the comment.

A surprise find as my eye wandered up the branches. Everybody sees through their own filters...but I am a like Jules...hoping the cat was able to come back down!

@my-ky: Thanks for the visit Deb. I forgot to insert the referral to the post of a few days before that shows our rescue with extension ladder. I just related to the cold, high up, lonely stranded feel of this, and realized we all are there some time or another.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

It looks safely nestled in the branches and certainly on the top of its world in this shot ... until it was rescued. Hope it's warm somewhere.

@Judy aka L@dybug: It was cold and scared, meowing, and gripping the branches. I think it takes someone like me who has know that fear and loneliness to project those feelings on it.

Calusarus from Drome des collines, France

An interesting forest of branches

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I hope he is safe and content somewhere closer to the ground now. ;-)

15 Nov 2012 10:44pm

@B. Thomas: me too, but the whole neighborhood now knows about him, and his anonymous days are over.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Way up there, kitty, and starring in a nice photo.

15 Nov 2012 11:19pm

@Rick: Nice to see you back again!

LauraS from Chico, United States

Yes, it is a part of life for most of us, stuck up in a tree once in a while, alone, scared, cold, tired. Nicely shared.

I feel the same when the darkest part of the year comes. I feel it more introspective. As opposed as with lighter days. Your image conveys that very well.
