The Gallery – Trees

16 Mar

It’s Gallery time again over at Sticky Fingers and this week Tara has chosen a lovely theme for us: Trees. I already have loads of photos that I could use for this Gallery, but I thought that would be too easy. Instead of just picking any old tree picture, I decided that I would go and take a photo especially for this post.

So, on Monday, armed with my trusty mobile phone, I set off to take pictures of trees. I tried to ignore the ducks and the weird patterns in the clouds and just shoot trees. I ended up with quite a selection (thanks to my new memory card) and have found it really difficult to pick just a few favourites.

I’m off now to have a look at all the other wonderful trees posted in this weeks Gallery. Are you coming?

    Really interesting group of photos, I think the second picture is my favourite…..it’s very haunting!

      Thank you. I thought the tree in the middle looked a bit strange inbetween all the straight trees x

    Wow! That has to be the best collection of tree pics I’ve seen in a while! One pic looks like antlers!

      Thank you 🙂 Can’t believe I didn’t see antlers, obvious when you point it out x

    Wow. They’re all amazing shots. I think the first reminds me of a spiral stairway.

    Love the first one as it is similar to the first photo I developed in my photography class at school. It brought back great memories. I love trees too but not many around this way

    That first shot makes me feel a bit dizzy x

      It was not easy looking up to take the photo x

    Love the first picture and the feathery feeling of the branches/twigs as you look up the tree trunk to the canopy.

    Lovely pics! Love the silvery trunks, looks like a forest from a fairy story that 😉
