Just a tree or a natural living sculpture?
We all know that trees come in all shapes and sizes. Some are grouped together to form a coppice, forest or wood, but it’s when they stand alone that their true beauty and magnificence can be really appreciated.
In winter when the tree is stripped of its leaves, the many years of growth can be witnessed, as each branch appears to intertwine with its neighbour, yet achieving an overall symmetry of shape and form. Is it any wonder that as photographers we are drawn to these rather special natural living sculptures in the landscape around us?
This shot was taken in the Brecon Beacons of Wales earlier this year.

This one just perfect in the natural form and isolation
Thanks Victor. Despite its exposed location its has retained perfect form.

I too love the fractal nature of a bare tree.
Thanks for commenting. For me bare trees are far more appealing than how they appear in the summer.
Thanks Andy. Hope you are now getting settled in your new home. Alan
Hi Alan – yes slowly settling in, we have cleared the last of the boxes!
