I can understand your infatuation with this. A very photogenic subject. Your photograph looks almost like a painting, or a pastel. :)~ HUGZ
A little tweak here and a little tweak there! I want to get a few in the summer when it takes on a personality of it's own!!
Me thinks he got plenty of personality right here, right now!! But will look forward to those too, obviously. :)~ HUGZ
Oh, that IS beautiful!
There are a few of these in this garden and a couple around town. They have escaped the dreaded Dutch Elm Disease due to their low stature, as there are not many regular Elms around here any more.Thanks for dropping by Fiona.
Nice and gnarly!
Yes! I love gnarl! We have a gnarly Witch Hazel in our garden which has a somewhat similar appearance.
I just clicked on the link Jim. Wow there is some difference in what this tree looks like in bloom and when it is dormant. The difference is just amazing!
Yes, you wouldn't think they were the same trees! Incredible what a bunch of leaves can do! And a little colour!
ON~~~~if not my fave!
Gorgeous tree, Jim.Great pic!
Thanks SHaron! Wonder if there are any in Tennessee?
Hope to get more shots of this in the comng seasons.
Beautiful image, Jim. Is your weather there nice, too? Today is wonderfully mild!
The past two days have been spring-like.....around 5-6C! An early spring maybe?
Hello Jim,Beautiful, with a sturdy trunk and free-form branches...Ivan
Almost umbrella like. And add a few leaves.....quite the character tree!
It is an elegant tree.
I've never heard of this tree. It sure is unusual. :)
It sure is! I think that's what makes it so noticeable.
i love the shadows & different colors throughout the shot. ( :
Hi Beth! You have to love the morning sun in winter helping out here with those long shadows.
I'll bet the tree has a story to tell, your picture certainly conjures one up!
Beautiful picture, and I love those blue shadows. The tree looks quite different when it has leaves!
It sure does Louise and as I said I will be revisiting this one in the summer for some comparative analysis!
I love all your snowy photos, from this post and the earlier ones.I have a snow photo as a header photo right now, but it was taken several years ago at the Monastery. It's quite warm in Georgia right now, might be 70 at the weekend!
Yes Kay, the weather is surely upsidedown lately!!
That's a beauty!
It is! It stands out in all seasons, Terry.
Thank you Jim! Oh - you meant the tree?
PS That elm is a knockout - love the way it dances in the snow.
Jim- that's a truly beautiful shot-- your camera eye never misses. I'm loving all the snow images!Vicki
