PIC OF THE WEEK - REACHING FOR THE SKY

I'm partial to taking pictures of trees.  They make great subjects and they're always reminding me of something else... besides being  tree.

REACHING FOR THE SKY
 

This one seems to be pleading for new life as it reaches for the sky, and there's something about the way the dark decaying limbs contrasts against the bright blue sky that captures my attention and makes me like this picture. 

 
Spanish moss hangs from its branches like overgrown beards and blows softly in the gentle breeze (such a romantic!).

If I had a dime for every tree picture I had... I could quit my day job!  Have a nice week everybody!

I too love taking pictures of trees. There is something about the majesty of them that calls to me.

Thank you for sharing these pictures.

And the moss does look like overgrown beards. I wouldn't have thought of that if you hadn't of mentioned it. Good call.

I too have a collection of thousands of photos of trees. But there's something special about a dead tree, backdropped against a deep blue sky, that catches my eye every time. Nice shots.

Trobairitz... I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with a favoritism toward trees.

Webster... me too. :)

Mq01... Weeping Willows are so pretty too, when they come "alive" and move with the wind.

Canajun... Thank you! It looks like the dying tree is praying to the Gods for Mercy on it's life. I wonder just how old that tree is?
