Old oak at Tjursta

Tjurstaeken
This is an old oak at Tjursta in rural Österhaninge. You can see the tree from the Dalarövägen and I have wanted to photograph it close-up for a few years now. It was a muddy walk across two fields in my Adidas sneakers earlier in the week, but if you want a specific photo you have to sacrifice yourself a bit. Not sure how old this oak is, but it was probably already picturesque back when the long lost property Tjurstatorp was still standing. I will go back for a Summer view of the tree a few months from now.

It's a beautiful old oak Steffe, but it's not quite the old tree 😋

That is a beautiful old tree. It has a perfect shape.

I was thinking the same thing as Sharon. It may be old, but it has maintained a fine shape for many years. And that's unusual.

A new tree to keep track of!

That's a gorgeous tree and your shot does it justice. (I hope you feel the sacrifice was worth it. It is, in my opinion. But it wasn't my shoes.) Please do go back in summer!

I'd say it was definitely worth the effort. What a perfect specimen. I'm talking about the tree now. Looking forward to seeing it in different seasons.
