Saturday Photo Hunt - Wooden



To participate in the Hunt, please go here.


Looking through my albums for inspiration I find that I have a 'thing' for tree trunks:










A very, very, very, very old olive tree in Madeira







Horse Chestnut at Stourhead





Trees in a park near Whistler, Vancouver, Canada







Grandson Thomas standing in a VERY tall tree trunk, near Whistler, Vancouver, Canada

Brilliant Chris! Love the trees, very imaginative and of course natural!

With tree trunks like these, who wouldn't be! I can't figure out how come you have those fascinating trunks in England and we don't seem to. I am so envious!

Dragonstar said...

Lovely trees! That's a really weird one in picture 5!

Mima said...

You have managed to capture some really amazing tree trunks there, I especially love the Horse Chestnut, it looks like fingers curling round the trunk.

Those are some truly unique tree trunks. I believe I, too, may have a thing for trunks.

these are great and mighty trees .. wow .. I wish there was place like this here .. where one could just rest beneath such trees.
