This week, Ann-Christine has chosen Trees as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and there is certainly no shortage of those in my photo files, so in order to select a few for this post I decided to look at the images and choose some of those where I thought the trees added the finishing touch, the icing on the cake, so to speak. These were taken at Cantigny Park, Chicago Botanic Garden and the Morton Arboretum in Illinois and one in Utah.
Hi Sue, the trees are amazing. I like the different colors. Beautiful choice !
Thank you, Karin!
Love the second pic; the gnarled old tree with the dark sky is v.atmospheric.
Thanks, Jez! The Utah pic is one of my favorites and one of the few times when I didn’t mind that the weather was not that great.
Trees of all colours, size and shape…lovely pictures, Sue!
Many thanks, Indira!
Love the colorful trees but the reflection is my fav
Hi, Sue. Great collection. I love that reflection shot too. 🙂
Brilliant collection of beautiful trees showing all shapes and colours- my favourite is the second one- very atmospheric….but I love them all!
Thanks, Marianne! I had so many tree photos, it was hard to pick which ones to use so I went with the overall effect that the tree had on the image.
Great gallery of beauties – my favorites are the second and the third one. But all great shots as well.
Thank you, Ann-Christine! This was really a fun challenge.
A stunning collection.
Thanks, Tom! I have to admit I was quite pleased with the way these looked.
How fabulous! I especially like the reflections 🙂 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Jo! I really appreciate your comment.
Some very cool photos! I especially like the tree among the barren landscape with the clouds in the backdrop.
Thanks, Chris! The tree in Utah looked like it had possibilities so I took pics from every angle but this one turned out the best.
Thank you, John!
