El pino a la roca... la roca al pino...
beautiful shot Gatoland...the way the tree is reaching up to the sky, it's magical!
It is likely that the photograph is pine over 300 years
I took up to four photos for this panorama
Well, not as old as the giant sequoias that have in the U.S. or the yews we have here, not as an olive tree that is in the North (in Santander) with more than 2,000 years old but still is a spectacular specimen. Pines do not live much longer, well if felled one of over 500 years despite the protests of my father in the town hall, that was a crime.
I love old trees...how they become so gnarled and twisted. They have such interesting forms.
If you could speak they would tell us as did those scars, how they had to survive the man and his ax, to thunderstorms, lightning, floods... no doubt they would tell us stories to write a book for each tree.
So next time you encounter one of these old trees, give it a hug!
Hi Susan, I do very often because I feel its energy, a few days ago I commented on a photo of Ana (Ordiso62), if you feel you must embrace life, and I'm sure the photo, even dead things passed.
but of course...it's the only way to treat a tree.
Yes, although some do not understand or ever will understand and we will ...
