Our World Tuesday

Today I'm once again linking up with Our World Tuesday, a meme that encourages bloggers to share images of their world. It's a great way to get a glimpse of life through the eyes of others! You can find out more about it here. Even if you don't participate, I encourage you to take a look at the intriguing photos that bloggers from around the world share each week.

I'm sure most of you know by now that I love photographing trees, particularly winter trees. I love the shapes their bare branches make against the sky. These trees always seem to have so much character; I'm sure they have stories to tell.




Wishing you all a beautiful Tuesday!

  4. I love how you say that they have stories to tell...I've often thought the same thing :)

  5. Bare trees always make me think of graveyards . . . I'm not sure why. But when you said they have stories to tell I instantly saw the branches as some great story outline board where each branch was a diverging plot... I might look at trees differently now :) thanks for sharing the pictures.

    1. Sadly, we don't have a good tree for that. :( I had one when I was growing up, though. Maybe that's another reason I like trees so much.

      I'm looking forward to spring, too. ☺

  20. Dana I had to stop back. Did you ever go into the woods in the fall and just listen to all the leaves falling??? I've done it several times and usually end up falling asleepbut what a great nap...

    1. I used to do that when I was growing up. It's so peaceful out there! My dad is a retired logger, so I spent my growing-up years around trees. Loved it!

      I live in a large city now, so unfortunately there's no opportunity to go out in the woods. :(

  30. I love how in winter the trees being bare allow us to see the beauty beyond them that they kept hidden from view in the summer when they were in full leaf.
