The Swedish Whitebeam

The Swedish Whitebeam

I walked down to the old tree yesterday. Some of the snow has melted away, which is nice. I noticed a few common cranes on the meadow. Unfortunately they were too far away for my camera, despite the fact that I had the zoom lens mounted. And this somewhat different view of the old tree was tricky to shoot. It is six photos shot with the zoom lens, which I then stitched together and turned into a black and white photo.

She really does look different from this angle. Well done, Steffe.

Thanks, nice to see that there are a few tree lovers still out there!

Love this tree! It has so much character, perfect in black and white. I wonder how old it is.

It really looks great! Nice picture.

Not sure how old it is. I received a photo a couple of years ago depicting the tree. The photo is from the 1950s and the tree looks pretty much like it does today in that old photo.
