That Old Tree

That Old Tree


It's Friday and time for another Skywatch post. Earlier this week I walked down the now snow-free and dry path to the old tree. Nice to see this view without all the white stuff on the ground. Believe it or not, but this is my 208th photo of this Swedish Whitebeam.

If you haven't been here before, or if you like me are a bit addicted to the oxel tree have a look at the slideshow.

The old tree does not look old and tired, only strong and beautiful!

I always like seeing this old tree. It looks nice against the sky.

I love old trees. This one looks like a sentinel guarding something outside of the photograph.

When do you think the leaves will appear?

The slideshow is great, what a fun glimpse into life around the tree.
Oh, by the way, I have a friend who is from Sweden who told me how to say the name of your city (I like to be able to say what I'm reading). 2 minutes later I couldn't remember the pronounciation, so now I'm back to saying "Han-in-gee". I know, I'm sorry :(

I especially love trees like this. By that, I mean those that sort of stand alone on a large expanse of land. This photo moved me and then I watched your series of photos and I was enthralled. Wonderful presentation! Thank you for sharing these stunning photos.

That old tree has so much character in its shape! There's an inner strength and beauty in this fascinating tree! And the sky seems to highlight it!

That tree is a very familiar sight! How far is it from the front door of your house?

Ineke said...

ooooh, i like the slide show! It's good you got some humans in it too, so you can get how big it actually is.

Steffe said...

I will have a look at your idea Noel.
I'm glad that everyone agrees with me that this is a special tree.


I can walk to the tree in fifteen minutes or so Leif.

I'd say some time in mid May perhaps, Brattcat.

I'm not very good at writing things phonetically correct, but you could ask your friend to tell you how to say Tungelsta, because that's where I live T.

Wonderful old tree. I like the way you always shoot it from the same angle. That tree has seen a lot!
