Photo Friday – tree hugger

Quite simply I love trees. As a child I always imagined they had a life of their own, an idea encouraged by one of my favourite childhood books The Enchanted Apple Tree.
Decades later, Director Peter Jackson would give me one of my favourite moments in film to date in The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers where the trees fight back against their destruction by the Wizard Saruman and his army of orcs (watch 2 mins of it here). So inspired by Earth Hour on 29 March, an ode to the trees I have come across.

  1. Those pics are really spectacular, each one seems to tell a story. The ‘burnt’ one looks very similar to the one I too took while in Melbourne, maybe it’s lost friend:-)
