Theme of the Week: TREES

solstice98July 19, 2009

Cranelady doesn't post very often and asked me (as next in line from last week) to start this one off. Let's stay close to last week's flower theme, which was so popular, and move up to trees.

Palm Tree and Crescent Moon

What a fantastic theme.
I hope it's okay to post more than one.

The shadow from this gray oak falls on the rock behind it just during the longest days of the year.

This feels European to me but it's from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

Great photos, everyone. I really enjoy this forum.

I am fascinated to see the size of the Norfolk Island pines in Maui, ronf.

And solstice....isn't Longwood Gardens a most magical place?

pfmastin, those are relatively small ones. An arboretum on Oahu has some that are 60 or 70 feet tall.

solstice98, your picture of misty Alaskan pines is fantastic!!

And I took this one on someone else's:

That is a peaceful shot with the snow. Although I would like to finish summer before think about it.

Wonderful subject and great pictures all of you!
Trees are my specialties, since I have a little nursery and have grown thousands from seeds, but mine are mostly fruit trees and still small so I post some specimens from the same garden, [Island Mainau] Germany.

I said I wouldn't add any more but I guess I lied. I can't resist posting this one too.

I know, Crunchpa. It's the S word at my house. My apologies. :-)

Kate, what is that gorgeous bloomer?

It's a weeping cherry tree. One of my favorite trees, but not one that grows in Central Florida.

I can't possibly compete with the beautiful photos I see here, but I liked this tree I saw in Chicago in the courtyard of an apartment building on the Dearborn Garden Walk last weekend.

Neat scene Cambro. One those of us out here in the country don't get to enjoy too often. Thanks for posting it.

You don't have to out compete anyone here to add your voice to the choir. We may not always make beautiful "music", but we sure have fun trying.

I agree. It's not the competition, it's the sharing. I get so many great ideas for setting up shots or for cropping existing photos by looking at what you all post. I get busy with work and don't visit the forum for a couple months at a time but then I come back and get hooked all over again. It inspires me to look at my old photos and to pick up the camera again.
