You are specializing in trees now, so you have a lot to choose between. The fact that so many trees are famous and have e recorded history shows the affection of people for these impressive silent but living things. This one has a beautiful network of branches making a superb pattern against the grey sky.

The length of the road is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the big tree near the road. The cloudy sky does not hurt the output of the colours. Have a nice day.

Nice photo of this barren tree. The branches have come out well against the white sky. Good use of the vertical format. The curved length of the road is giving depth to the composition. I like that you present these tree photos with a good note about its type, age and its location. Thanks for sharing.

si sarà mica pentita anche la signora???
Secondo me odia la fotografia, ma credo che abbia un amore per la natura che va oltre.
Bella la leggenda che hai riportato, in ogni caso mi sembra molto grande, soprattutto se penso alla quercia che è nel giardino di mia madre, ha appena 10 anni circa, sembra un fuscello.
