O Is For Oak


Tree Series - Coombe Country Park

It is almost May and this tree still looks like a silhouette against the morning skies.  When we got up this morning the sun was out.  The plan - to get a shot with the sun shining on the tree.  Sunrise is behind me.  The reality - it clouded over by the time we got there 30 minutes later.  I will not be defeated.  Will try this tactic again next month when I check back to see how this tree looks then.  Here is the view in January.  

Hope your week is going well.  Have a look at more 'O' photos - ABC Wednesday.

A very grand looking O for the day. It looks very atmospheric against that cloudy sky! Despite some beautiful blooms, many of our trees are also still bare (likely from those inconveniently cloudy moments:)

By May I'm sure this mighty oak will be covered in leaves.

Excellent choice for O, glad to see 'your' tree is a sturdy English oak!

Oh Wow! I checked back at the January photo and there's quite a difference! I can hardly wait to see it next month! A perfect spot to record the seasons.

Well there you go, what's that expression 'the best plans of mice and men'.. Loved the January shot and feel sure the next months image will look completely different again.

Many, many thanks for your comments. I see I have some new visitors too....so off to see your webpages. Glad a lot of you share my curiosity as to how this tree will look in a month.

Yes, Tanya, that is 'my' tree. Well, maybe 'our' tree cause Mr LOL likes it too :).

Lulu - I am totally noticing the trees blooming this year. Must be because of taking up photography.

Deb - like your choice of words!!!

Grace - My plans always seem to go haywire...not good because they always include Mr LOL :).

Thanks again you all!
