Mira :- these two side-by-side pictures are from the same tree but on different sides of the massive trunk. It is a beautiful huge specimen and each autumn when it loses its colourful outer jacket, I am there with my camera to capture the colours!!

Trees are so beautiful, Hazel! And your detailed photo shows it so nicely. The bark looks like satellite photos of our Earth. Wonderful photos! May

Thank you for your inspiring comments May!

I've had another fresh look at the bark photo's and you are perfectly right - they DO look like satellite photo's of Earth!! - Isn't that wonderful, a tree reflecting the earth's geographical features - perfect harmony where we would never have expected to look for it!

Warmest greetings, Hazel
