  1. Love your reflections – I love journeying with you- thanks for the ride! Linda

  2. I think “Trees” was the first poem I ever memorized. I loved these shots!

  3. Mom and I will never forget our drive north up the Oregon coast and into Washington and the National Park there, absolutely smitten by the TREES- truly a spiritual experience. We played a tape on that trip that we continue to listen to reprising the experience. Your pics do the same thing. Thanks, Love. Your sensibilities and skills are truly amazing. D.

  4. More beautiful pictures! Love it (and of course the name of the album caught my eye, since it is the name of my company!)!

  5. Very interesting take on our big, green friends. Loved it.

  6. Wow! Great pictures. Trees are my favourite topic too.

  7. absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! just when we think we r big…and strong…we need to get a reality check…..! overwhelming!!

  8. The photos are awesome! You “see” in such amazing ways. Suzie

  9. Mighty pine is like the Salvador Dali of trees. These are among my favorite of your images! I love the architecture of trees and you have captured it perfectly, as always.

    • Leah, I see what you mean about the Salvador Dali Pine! How clever you are! And your compliments are so nice- thank you! Coming from you, with your artistic eye, it means a great deal. In your honor, I am renaming that photo 😉

  10. I can’t even pick a favorite , each one is intriguingly beautiful with it’s twists and turns and colors and textures. “Trees “by Kilmer was my mother’s favorite poem…. she recited it word for word until she passed –at 96! Love it… Tina’s and your blogs have become my favorite place on the internet. A very worthwile place to be.

    • Jeannie, thank you! It was a privilege to hear the recording of your Mother reciting “Trees” – a moving experience. I’m so glad you enjoy seeing my posts. I really appreciate your feedback!

Love to hear what you think...
