Is the king coming? Should we all kneel? What a wonderful picture! Amazing will, this tree, to be so bent and yet keep on living.
:-) Yes, it's amazing, how they grow and survive. All these trees Juniperus Sabina on this slope of the furthest South-Western Island El Hierro in Europe bow towards the sea. Brian May Queen guitarist referred to the island in "Another World". A picture of this tree is on the cover of his album.
Very good Swissmay! And very special!
Thank you Sigmund! :-)
You like "Queen" I understand now the "May"....in Swiss....may.....
Yes, I like Queen! But my name doesn't have anything to do with Brian May - unfortunately. ;)
Tolles Foto! :-)
Danke Sunpixx! Grossartiger Baum! :)
May, ce sont des arbres tres beau, ont dirait qu'ils luttent contre le vent.
Muito obrigado, Epi! Tous les arbres dans cet endroit sont comme ça. Il luttent contre le vent.
this tree looks like it is taking a very painful walk! Well caught May
Nick, thanks very much! You are right, well observed. This is one tree of many at the end of the old world, they are all bent down. There should be one or two more from that place in my gallery. They have an incredible age and are nearly dry.
Best wishes, May
May ~ this is the sort of tree where you can see many things ~ maybe for a child scary things ~ I have seen more of your shots of this sort of tree ~ poor trees ~ they need a walking stick!
Nick, I know what you mean. They can look scary when there is some fog or mist and we are convinced that something has been moving behind the trees and just waiting to assail us. ;) Haven't I been courageous to get those pics - alone and in this solitude? ;)) The conclusion - I'd better take a walking stick next time...
Muy buena, el árbol doblado por el viento, por muchos años de viento fuerte.
Miguel, muchas gracias por tus comentarios!
Un saludo, May
Greetings, Pedro M
Pedro, gracias! Este árbol en El Hierro siempre me ha impresionado de nuevo. Un saludo desde la Suiza, May
