Twisty Oak

Hello hello! OH my goodness yesterday was SO nice (finally!)! It got up into the very low 60's and even though the sun barely peeked out it was glorious outside. We actually got to the point where we were wearing shorts and tank tops and flip flops like it was actually summer, even though it really isn't yet. Then here we are on Tuesday and it is supposed the rain (maybe even a little snow :O) here and there and is in the low 40's. But then... *drum roll........* starting tomorrow, we will have: 

AHH, it is a miracle! We are officially like coming out of the cold grey stone age or something. But anyway, picture time from sunny Saturday...


I think oaks may be my favorite kind of tree, all cool and twisty and huge. I kind of see it like a halloween tree like its going to come to life and scare little kids (okay okay sorry for the image!)? But anyway, I could probably take like a million pictures of this kind of tree :)

I do love my oak trees. They are so big and old and beautiful! I'm really looking forward to the next days of sunshine too.

Great photo of the oak. I also enjoyed reading your post.

I have become increasingly fascinated with trees, their limbs, their reach for the sky, and stories of years weathering everything nature has to throw. Never the same view. I am glad Spring is finally making an appearance - hopefully it sticks around for awhile.

We're supposed to get some warmer weather here too soon! Yay!

Great photo. I, too, like the bare oak trees. They are wonderful. I especially like to photograph them looking straight up from the base of the trunk.

I love the branches! Oaks really are amazing. I'm planning to photograph Live Oaks this weekend in coastal Georgia.

The sun felt AWESOME here today!
I was at an auction all day, and while it wasn't warm by any means, it was super sunny! (which made for a ton of mud)
Love the tree - I grew up with a yard full of 100+ year old oak trees.. I think oaks will always be my favorite. They're full of character.
