That Old Tree

That Old Tree

Sulky training up at the old tree. There was also two guys on a 4-wheeler there, but the guy in the sulky (who sounded like he was from Gotland), told them to stay off the path, which they did as they commented on all the people there with different interests. Because the horse dude was also shouting at a guy who was there with a model plane that he was hoping to play with. This is Mulsta, screamed the horse dude. This is Sture's land, you need to move away and make room for me. When I pointed out that I was going to take his photo his response was something about the North Swedish Horse, and how it reacted in these types of situations! So just another day up at the old tree I guess! This is my 222th photo of the Swedish Whitebeam.

belle composition avec le cheval et son cavalier. En effet l'abre fait vieux , mais le temps passe ;) et reprendra des couleurs au printemps

I bet the old tree had a thought or two about that exchange.

What a beautiful wide land, surely a joy being able to breath while being there.

A safe road ahead for you all and a peaceful Wednesday as well.

Beautiful photo. Looks cold.

It might seem a little extreme to say this after so many photos of the tree, but I think this shot is my favorite. I was so happy to see this post today--like having an unexpected friend pop into my Google Reader feed. Thanks for the photo.

Another brick in the wall of the story of this great tree...

Spring will return for sure Olivier, but it feels like it will be a long wait.

Ha ha, that's possible Brattcat.

No I haven't billyB, and I don't think anyone else have either.

It wasn't that cold but it was a bit misty.

My favorite photo of the tree is another autumn photo. Follow this link to see that shot Judy.

You have taught me a new word, I didn't know what Sulky was or what kind of contraption that thing was so I had to Google it. What a great shot.

Beautiful shot of the old tree.

I have to side with the man and horse. Horses can be very nervous and frighten easily. There could be a bad upset for them. Once, when I was riding, my horse became frightened and I ended up with a badly broken leg.
This picture draws me in.
