Beautiful trees. LIKE

Cheers, Jeff

I thought so, too, Jeff. It is the reddish coloured lichen on the trees that give life to the scene: the other side of the tree trunks is a dull grey, so such a photo only works in one direction.

Thanks for the L, Jeff.

Regards,

Ian

Wonderful picture, Ian! Love the "forest" of coconut trees under the blue sky! The clouds are also very pretty! LIKE! Best regards, Anne

This is our tropical world at the moment, Anne. I am pleased that you appreciate its beauty. (There are not too many butterflies about though.) Copra production was once big business, but now the plantations are aging and generally used only for local consumption.

Warm regards from Tonga,

Ian
