My Tree In November


iPhone to the rescue (again).

I am not going to tell you what I forgot
to put in my camera before departing for 
Coombe Country Park on Sunday -
but I will say it wasn't the battery :).

So here we have my frequently photographed
tree on the left taken from a slightly different angle.
For more shots over the last 10 months,

Great picture with your phone! Hey, I have forgotten the very same thing in my camera on more than one occasion!

Kate said...

The tree has great form.

Oh I hear you Lauren, been there done that...more than once :)) I see your tree is not quite alone, just a little stand offish :)

EG CameraGirl said...

Gorgeous countryside! I love the shape of the tree.

Ummm, I feel your pain. I now have an extra memory card that I carry with me. I have learned the hard way.

Stephanie said...

Frustrating when we forget the memory card. Your phone did capture very well, beautiful tree , lovely landscape.

Jane and Chris said...

The tree seems quite commanding!
I wonder how old it is.

what a lovely view!

Please consider yourself officially invited to participate this year's 5th Annual Gratitude (word) Quilt. Instructions (it is very simple) and a link that explains the origin of the word quilt can be found at the top of my blog. In past years there have been participants from every continent except Antarctica. If I’ve already invited you, I apologize... I am trying to reach as many people as possible, and sometimes forget whom I’ve already left this message for in a comment. My intention is most certainly NOT to spam you. I hope you'll join us, it is really amazing when all the words unfurl on November 27th, Thanksgiving Day in the United States.

Oh, yeah, that sinking feeling when we click the shutter button and . . . nothing. I am becoming a fan of my iPhone for photos. Some of them have been very good, as is your photo of this tree. Someone once said that the best camera is the one you have with you . . .

Tanya Breese said...

ha, i've done that before too! at least you had backup! i love your tree :)

Fun60 said...

Interesting that it is still hanging on to its green leaves.

Beautiful tree and surrounding area. My iPhone has come to the rescue many, many times. It does a great job with landscapes in my opinion. :)

Bill Nicholls said...

I do the same and use an android phone, nice photo

Cynthia said...

I did the same thing last weekend. Couldn't figure out why the camera would not come on when I had just charged the battery .... Oh, well, your phone did admirably!

Stuart said...

I guess it would be easy to make a quip about "phoning it in" but this is not the case here. Wonderfully composed photo... regardless of the apparatus.

Betty Luckhurst said...

I think trees make such grand photos. I love this one.

William Kendall said...

The tree casts quite a presence!

RedPat said...

This is a great shot of your tree!

Bev said...

Bluebell Woods said...

hamilton said...

Thank goodness for the iphone as backup, eh?!
I console myself when that happens by reminding myself of the times I'd "taken" photos with no film in the camera! At least now you get a warning beforehand.

JM said...

Love the light and colours. Beautiful photo!

LOLfromPasa said...

What can I say - I'm not completely alone forgetting the camera's SD card :). Hooray!

Thank you for leaving comments. Great to read!

No idea how old the tree is, Jane, or why it is still covered in leaves, Fun60. Odd weather I guess.

Grace - My old tree is 'exclusive', I guess :).

Deb said...

Great phone shot Lauren, your tree still looks almost summery.

Linda said...

It's good to have a backup camera! Nice shot!
