love these.. but then I love trees.. and the lighting in the first is really intriquing
last weekend I found a tree I really liked. I should go take it's picture sometime :-)
Don't you love those brake-slamming events! This guy looks a bit forlorn but yet full of character.
Amazing how the simplest things can be so beautiful! Hope you found lots of barns and fences too!
Old twisted trees against that blue sky,WOW! Beautiful.
I love trees like that...unique personalities...
Beautiful! Trees are a favorite subject of mine!
I love those twisty branches!
Alex would announce that the one limb is like a rainbow. ;) blessings ~ tanna
I love trees... so much character, so many different kinds.. all regal, dont you think?
Weathered charcoal trees and brilliant blue skies make for some really "great picks!"
Good morning,T!There's something so cool about knarly old trees. Trees are a favorite of mine to photograph, too. I've missed you while I was away!
Beauties. Some of my favourite trees are dead ones in the area.. one in particular, which I photograph often reminds me of your top shot.. though there's still a lot of life left in yours.
Good shot.Old trees are reallyfacinating to photograph,I can't get enough of them!!
Great shots. I often see things and wish for a photo. This time of year I find it hard to take many photos at all. By the time I get home from work and errands, it is dark! I have several things to share, but haven't been able to get the photos I want to show!Blessings,Lorilee
Like those old dead trees. The hawks and vultures like them too.
Me too. They have personality. Margie
Great pictures of the old tree, Theresa. When we were on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we took pictures of some of the old trees around...Love that BLUE sky too.Hugs,Betsy
Great shots. Really like the second tree!
I LOVE finding old, dead trees! There is a huge, dead eucaluptus tree off one of the freeway exits not far from where I live. The ranch with it was demolished a couple of years ago, but the tree remains in place. I actually stopped there this week and took photos of it before it, too, disappears! You can see it here:http://desertsandbeyond.blogspot.com/2011/12/tree-and-sunsetfirst-of-month120111.html
I like those shots too...thank you for reversing! ;)
I really like it too, lovely photos.
I notice unique trees, too. Dead and alive. These are really cool! :)
I love all those twisty, crooked limbs! Such interesting trees and terrific shots! Enjoy your day!Sylvia
There was an oak in the park down the street at the city house that had been struck by lightning I think, anyway it broke in half leaving only one branch and continued to grow and live. I loved that tree, took many a photo of it but eventually the city cut it down. I was very pissed the day they did that since it was obviously still a living tree that posed no danger.
I love the shape of trees and the eeriness of the dead ones. Very nice choices.
Beautiful trees, love trees too.
Trees have so many forms and shapes. They are always an artistic study. I went through a few om my mountain three images yesterday and I always discover something new and beautiful.
Back road beauty is just one of my favorite things. Nice pics.
Like last summer waiting to see rain in Texas, I now find myself wondering when I will see winter?
Nice shots. Thanks for sharing.Kay
Those are really awesome. I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that. I screamed at my mom to pull over when I saw the most striking picture I've ever taken in my life...it was in California and we'd had a wildfire burn through. Everything was black and charred on this one hill, and the only color at all in the whole place was the red on a sign that said, "Danger: Extreme Fire Hazard."I still have the photo, but I can't show it to anyone because I just get the "its photo shopped" response. >:( It is NOT!
Good trees! :)
Was it a throw back to your years as a teen spent sitting in trees... and drawing? :)
Beautiful trees and you captured them so well.Loving that blue sky too.Fiona x
Oh, what stories these could tell....Nice images.
I like those trees too Tex! I think I like them all leafed out and of course I do but those undressed trees have a charm of their own. They just need somebody like you that cares enough about them to give them a little spotlight :)
Its had a hard life and has lived to tell about it!!
Bardzo ładne kolorystycznie zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam
Oooh. Those are pretty. I'd have backtracked, too!
I like them too, it's all the lovely bendy branches I think, plus that lovely blue sky in the background doesn't hurt.
Trees do give us lots of photo opps! Like the ones you have here! I like the way the branches fan out!
T, nice shots!
Such pretty trees. I really like the first pic!
ME TOOO ME TOOO I like them both and would have stopped to.
My dear friendI like so much both photos!!!I wish you a very nice week!Best regards
Beautiful shots, great work.
Lovely captures...I also went looking for trees today... got a bit distracted along the way.
The second one looks like the remains of a dragon
Great shots!:)Lots of greetings!
Old weather beaten trees are much like some of us (not you) humans as we age. But, like Kathy mentioned, character often accompanies the look, at least we can hope it does. Nice photos!
I like the tree too!Greetings, Angela
I love that first one, too!
Threes are beautiful!
Wait til you see what I've got!!!!...:)JP
Love these, I also love trees
Hi Texwisgirl, Well, if you like trees, there are plenty here in beautiful Tennessee! Ha! Yes, I do agree, the gnarled big trunk with and without leaves is lovely! Have a super Monday tomorrow and a nice evening tonight!
Driving the Texas countryside never disappoints! You have to admire the tenacity of that tree to survive...you can tell its life hasn't been an easy one. The texture of the bark on the second tree is beautiful, especially against that gorgeous blue sky.
very pretty! this is my first visit to your blog .. from SSS ... and I am enjoying your photos and commentary. thanks! I'm a subscriber now!
Your dry weather has been pretty rough on the trees. Still they've developed a lot of character through all that adversity. Your photos have captured that very nicely.
I just love the bare trees, great capture. I'm sure you found some great subjects to photograph on the back roads.
Would have done the same thing. Very nice!
Great pictures, trees come in some very peculiar shapes don't they?
Oh, I like them both, and what a beautiful blue sky!
These are great ! Love the one of the tree !! (o:
Yep, I like em, too... they have character! LoL at Kathy's brake-slamming event comment! =)I like the idea a lot of a smaller collage & the single canvases, cuz the collage I posted seems too 'busy', esp to hang on a wall! Thank you Thank you Thank you! =)
I'm fond of trees too, especially ones without leaves.
Although just remnants of their former selves, still hanging on. Out of good stock!
Oh man, do I ever know about throwing the truck in reverse....or just stopping in the middle of the road to get a shot! I also have a favorite tree that just seems to have a character all it's own. Have to get out and shoot it again soon. I'm working on getting shots of it during different seasons of the year for a blog post.
They are both lovely!
Back roads are a great place to find hidden beauty. Love both shots.
A BRB indeed, the rustic fence, the well aged road, a hit from all angles!
Those are some great twisty trees!xo Catherine
I love the curvy branches on that second one!
It looks so like summer there. I like it when you find trees you like, because I love your photos of them. dead trees standing are extra special. happy evening to you TWG.
I love trees, too. Each one has its own unique beauty.
I like "tree bones" too -- leafless, they really show their grace and character,
These are amazing!
I have a thing for cool looking and unusual trees too!Great shots!
Wow very nice shots. I just love pictures of trees.
You know I think that if you and I were to ever go for a ride in the country to take some pictures we would be stopping every 5 feet! lol When I'm driving I stop and take pictures of everything. When my husband is driving I'm holding my arm out the window and snapping pictures as he is driving! Love the trees!
Wonderful character! I would have thrown it in reverse, too!
That is a really cool tree. I would have had to back up for that one too. Great photos.
Great color and lighting! The clear blue backgrounds are wonderful!
oh...i LoVE those old weathered...trees...esp when there are NO leaves...like worn skeletons...against the blue sky!!love them! (and i do that all the time too...turn around...back up...or just wish i had brought my camera! :) )
Great trees. Out walking today, I was noticing the nice architecture of a few since their leaves are gone. Should have made the effort to find a good angle to shoot from.
I liked the trees too - but I really loved that blue sky behind it.sandie
Love these trees!Been on the road for several days, need to catch up on all your doings!
Finally! Someone else who sees the beauty in these old, dead trees. My friends and family think I'm crazy.
