Yes Dave :) . We camped at Betty Cottles and that night apparently some bloke was peeping into the ladies showers  :D


It wasn't me, honest!   :D


Yes, I thought it was Tottiford Reservoir.  Every time I go there I think how beautiful that avenue is.  I think most of these avenues of trees started out as beech hedges, but have been left to grow into large trees.

I'm not a science fiction fan (of books) but there is a short story by Ursula K Le Guin called ' The Direction of the Road ' which anyone with an arboreal interest may find amusing.
It is a story written from the viewpoint of a tree ...... I can't say anymore or it will spoil it for you. It is just tongue in cheek (well I think it is) but it may make you pause next time you walk by a tree.
I found the story in a collection of her shorts - called ' The Wind's Twelve Quarters '


A friend of mine is an artist, who many years ago painted an imaginary scene:- there was a standing stone, a tree and me. I didn't pose for the painting but he managed to put me in the scene.
I only have a photo print of the painting and if I can find it I'll try to upload it - so you can see his tree, rather than me.

Only a hill but all of life to me, up there between the sunset and the sea.

I absolutely love trees and enjoy photographing them (even if not very well  :-[ )


A few of my favourites...


Fallen trees in Flag Dale, Derby's









I've always loved the twisty trees in Padley Gorge....







And the Beech trees in a lovely little wood above Great Longstone....

















This one's the Ridge of Kerridge, near Bollington...







I've got too many I like to post them all! :D
