Winter Trees

Winter Trees
Black branches against a grey sky

Standing in fields
and at the side of the road
So bare 

and yet so beautiful

Standing against buildings

In parks by the lake
 
Looking as cold as we feel and yet sheltering us too


whilst enhancing the view.

Photos taken yesterday in the village of Tissington and the town of Buxton in Derbyshire

  1. Lovely photographs. At least when they are bare we can see through to what's behind!

    1. It is indeed, Amy - they take on quite a different shape don't they?:)

  4. Those are wonderful photos. I've always been rather fond of winter trees myself. There's something magical about them - with their lives on hold, just waiting to burst into leaf in Spring.

  7. Buxton is such a nice place. Great that the trees had space to have room to spread. :-)

  8. I do like seeing the trees in Winter as your can identify more clearly the varieties from their general shapes and the way the branches grow. Buxton is a beautiful town.

    1. They almost take on another identity in winter don't they? I agree Linda, Buxton is a lovely town:)
