I can't see the wood for the trees - Thematic Photography

A few years back I studied the history of a wood close to my home and as a consequence have a batch of photos of trees. The problem is which ones to post.

This one caught my eye on Tresco in the Scilly Isles
This is close to the wood and suffered in a winter storm but seems determined to survive by leaning on those next to it.
These have become the place to be for a desirable rookery.

Or a refuge for a wood pigeon

Dead silver birch have become the home for something else.

Becoming the host for the tinder (Horses' Hooves) fungi kills them off.

some quite bizarre pictures there, Bob and they remind me of some I took at Icod in Tenerife. I could have sent them to you if I'd known.

I love that first picture.

Great pics, Bob. Our farm is surrounded by trees. I'll check out the link. Happy Saturday. :-)

Oh wow, I particularly love the tree in the first picture.

Wow, those are all great. You really did have trouble deciding which to post. :) How nice of you to visit my blog and leave a comment. I look forward to reading more of yours!
