Way way of grid deep in the forest is where you find the most beautiful of trees ...

I think this might be one of the oldest I have seen ... fallen branches and scars from previous storms and winds ... Twisted to gain the light and warmth of the sun new shoots appearing on varied places . The roots underfoot are gnarly and widespread but in all her glory I bet she could tell lots of stories ... and little birds will come back to nest in her just glorious ๐ŸคŽ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸคŽ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ‘‹Just wanted to give you an example of how your photography helps people. I was having a bad night last night, struggling with my breathing and the more I propped myself up the more it made my back hurt ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„. Feeling very lonely and sorry for myself, I then pictured your photo of the tree and wondered how something so unreal looking could be part of the natural world. It made me smile through it all and therefore able to deal with everything in a more positive way ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚. Thank yoooo xxx

Thatโ€™s beautiful BB. Until a couple of weeks ago I had a view of a massive tree that stood in a field about 100 mtrs from my house . Living in an old cottage my windows are quiet small and the branches filled the whole view which I loved especially in winter when it looked like lace . Sadly the tree was apparently diseased and potentially dangerous and had to be removed . When it came down I actually cried , it had stood there long before I arrived 25 years ago and it was so sad to see it go ๐Ÿฅฒ

Blackbird9 profile image
Blackbird9 in reply to Thepainterswife

I think we must have the same windows every ones a frame to the outside ...I'm so sorry for your tree being cut down .. even though they are dying they still have that beauty in them...

Thepainterswife in reply to Blackbird9

I took this photo in 2021 , I only took it because I thought the fungus itself was beautiful ( the photo doesnโ€™t do it justice) but Iโ€™m guessing this had something to do with the trees demise ๐Ÿค” The tree itself looked strong and healthy but maybe the roots had been attacked ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Deadly fungus ?
Blackbird9 profile image
Blackbird9 in reply to Thepainterswife

I love some fungi that I find on the forest due to it's beauty... but your very correct in saying they kill the trees from the inside out .... and it can cause falling branches or fallen trees for safety it's best to cut them down sadly ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
