Well worth the stop. Lovely scene.

I haven't posted here in a while. Here are two tree "monsters" photographed recently.

Ansel had a fine photograph of a Jeffrey Pine tree on top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite National Park, taken in 1940 (when I was 1 year old).

I was there in 1971, and the tree was still thriving, but by 1991 it was dead. Here are my views of it.

Wow, Eric, that is quite an impressive involvement with such an historically iconic place.

I don't have a print of Ansel's Jeffrey Pine, but I was sufficiently familiar with it so that when I saw the tree (in 1971), I recognized it and had to take a snap of it.

I do have a print of Ansel's "Oak Tree in Winter, Yosemite," but I haven't run across the actual tree.

That's a nice set.  The back story and reference to AA makes it even more compelling.

Wow, so many great trees! I've only looked through a few pages but this thread is going to require a time investment to enjoy them all!

Here are some of my favorite trees.

I really like the 1st and 3rd images a lot. The dead baby tree in the still water is for some reason calming.

I am not sure if these fit into this grouping of tree images. These are trees reflected in spring lily pad ponds.

Desert Oaks

Desert Oaks are my favourite trees, they survive in the driest part of the driest continent.

Sunrise at Yulara, Central Australia.

Thanks! The baby tree is an old tree that fell over and is now sprouting new growth. Cottonwoods form rows this way.

I bought my inner city semidetached house thirty years ago. In the backyard was a sawn off tree stump. The tree started to regrow and I though why not. It cost me a couple of thousand dollars to have it cut down around fifteen years later. Love those trees, but most people have not seen a fully grown Moreton Bay Fig tree. The look great in the Royal Botanical Gardens Sydney, however in my tiny backyard not so. A fully grown tree!
