Since we're on the subject of trees, I thought I would pass this along. It looks like an interesting book, a must-read for tree lovers.

 

Here's an excerpt from the book (nice photos too).

A great topic - It has highlighted a massive gaping hole in my portfolio. I must get out to the woods more  :) So many beautiful and inspiring images so far!

 

1. A tree wearing a jumper. It made me smile - a lot - when I saw this!

2. Camperdown Elm in Winter

3. Similar to my entry in October's challenge I'm afraid, but a lonely tree in a flooded field (which reminds me- I really ought to try and find out what kind of tree this is!)

This one made me smile, too, because it was done by the two wonderful women who own the store there. I hope you went into Domus. They have wonderful things from all over the world.

I'm ashamed to say I didn't, as we were in a bit of a rush at the time. Sadly I'm no longer in New York :( But will make sure I add it to the bucket list for when I'm next there again! It sounds wonderful, and this tree certainly made my day!  :D

The above were taken 30 minutes or less away. The bottom two about 10 minutes from my house. The Overholser dam, bottom is the North Canadian river and Overholser lake, divided by a levee.

The top one is Arcadia lake.

I'm glad that I am not running this challenge.  The images are fantastic.  How could you choose.
