I too love the look, feel and mood of trees. This one seems very stately and proud. I like the mood you've created with this photo of the oak. I've posted an old oak tree also on my TN account. I enjoyed your note here very much Thanks! Well done.
Hi Monika. I love trees as well. I am happiest when I am in the forest surrounded by trees and can see nothing man made. About 11 years ago I planted a whole field of sweet chestnut trees. They grow very fast here and now it is like a forest.
My wifes parents have a farm not far from here where they have live for over 40 years. Jans dad is a tree fanatic and has covered the farm in every tree that can possibly grow in New Zealand. We even have stuff that the Botanical gardens doesn't have.
Have you seen Thomas Pakenhams books "Meetings with Remarkable Trees' and 'Remarkable Trees of the World'?
I tried to make a link for you,but I'm too dumb ;)
You can find it on Google anyway. Its an amazing book.
I like your notes about your old culture too. The same happens in many countries. A new civilisation or culture arrives and feels they have to 'civilise' the natives. Its quite sad really. I'm glad you still take an interest in your old customs and traditions.
Thanks for your interesting post.

Monika, I like the dark moody feel of your shot..It has an overall somber effect on the viewer. Excellent note, I like it!

Superb photo Monika ! I like very much this type of back-light with the silhouette of the tree which is revealed thanks to the sun in background.
Congratulations, you also have write a very interesting note.

Ładnie, kontrastowo to wyszło ale efekt jest ok. Dobra kompozycja. Dobry komentarz.
Do tych białych obwódek czepili się u mnie przy ostach ale to się zawsze pokazuje po podostrzeniu.

This is a very nice shot Monika,
A very big dominating tree always looks excellent in these shots.
Fantastic composition and nice colours. I like the way the sun looks like it's burning through the tree.
Thanks for posting
