Skywatch Friday: Roxbury Tangle

Twisted Apples

I haven't left the boneyard yet. There was plenty to see and enjoy there. Color me morbid, but I love these places were the trees get a bit of a break and grow as they please for as long as they can. These graceful limbs captured my imagination. It seemed to me they were responding to the same music as they grew.

  1. This tree is beautiful, it looks like a very profound symbol or two people dancing.

    Nothing morbid about something that artistically beautiful.

  2. Lovely! They could be dancing, or throwing their arms wide for a big hug about to happen. Marvelous trees!

  3. The trees did take some twist and turns as they go larger. Nothing wrong with spending time in a bone yard, they can be very fascinating.

  4. nice sentiment of the music and of course in a way very true because they did respond to the same orchestration of the elements-and seasons growing right next to each other in harmony

  5. These limbs do seem to hear their own music and create special "body" art in response! Great photo!

  6. Wonderful idea, the dancing trees growing to music! I'm certain you have it right, too!

  9. Like life, this tree has twists and turns and leads the eye up to the sky!

  10. The tree trunks look so graceful. Yes, perhaps they are listening and growing to the same music.

  12. I am with you on those trees. What a great post.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Really nice! Trees facinates me too. It seems they all have a dancce and a story to tell. Shall we swap tree photos?

    ReplyDelete
  14. The blue skies in the backdrop makes a good contrast of the trunks. Mmmm, let my imagination run, a couple dancing the Tango? Very cool shot!

    ReplyDelete
  15. You looked up and got a wonderful pic. I probably would have been to busy reading the stones and would have missed it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. They grow like a dance winding and curving together. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I too like to photograph trees. The graceful branches against that fabulous blue is endearing.

  18. is it already friday watch? oh good glad to find out it's only thursday....whew!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sandy, this is such a fabulous shot! I, too, see the trees dancing, open arms and reaching up! Really beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. They look like free spirits! Beautiful tree branches and bright blue sky!

    ReplyDelete
  21. i do so like bare trees against brilliant skies...beautiful capture.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh - the branches are stretching for the sun! And it is here at last!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree. Nature is so often constrained and managed. A bit of chaos works well.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Is that kinda like a Zentangle? (I've only recently discovered that those have a real official name.)

    I don't think it's morbid at all to like naturally occurring trees. Quite the opposite in fact. But I suppose the "morbid" part comes from the fact that you were in a cemetery at the time, huh? Big squeaking deal. Tress grow where they grow.

    ReplyDelete
  25. As I scrolled down, I saw that someone else said it looks like they are dancing. That was exactly my reaction. So appealing and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The same music ... What a lovely thought. Your photo is very lovely too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Beautiful Sandy. I love how your mind works! I think I can hear that music!

    ReplyDelete
  28. They look like they're doing the tango.Maybe they should be on Dancing With The Stars?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very nice, those trees are magnificent!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Loved the idea of trees growing up with music to make their shapes. The trunks on this photo are very interesting and one wonders what really has shaped them that way throughout the years that they have been standing there growing ever bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It reminds me of my Pecan Trees, all brambly and twisted and happy!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Graceful limbs is a poetic way of describing such an eerie tree.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sadly, I am not able to view this image :-(

    Wonder if anybody else has this problem!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Grace and movement captured so well.Lovely pictures and I agree they do look to be swaying to some unheard music

    ReplyDelete
  35. Old, gnarled trees are the best, especially against a blue sky.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aa the trees sing, ":Let's get together yeah yeah yeah. . . " I like that group of trees also.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love these shots also. The trees are magnificent. I am so enjoying similar shots from here in NYC.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Take that photo every week at the same time...wonderful to see how the leaf growth will change.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lovely view of the blue sky throught the trees. Have a nice weekend, Sandy.

    ReplyDelete
  40. A beautiful sky setting off the lovers. I enjoy cemeteries too. Odd I guess. Yet so peaceful.

    ReplyDelete
  41. lets go listen to the music this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can see why you enjoy these so much. I do, too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. They are dancing to their own music. Thanks. You have an eye Sandy!

    ReplyDelete
  44. After reading your lines I too feel the limbs are dancing to some music.

    ReplyDelete
  45. There is something about a boneyard, especially the older ones that changes us. We become more contemplative. Everything slows down, and our thoughts change.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Bowers of music
    magic
    meditation

    gratefully recieved, aloha, Sandy

  47. I like pictures like this one for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is a unique tree with some unique shapes , I wonder what kind of tree it is

    ReplyDelete
  49. The bones of the trees are surely interesting in their shapes!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Very nice patterns of the trees branches!
    Happy Sky Watch!

    ReplyDelete
  51. This tree is wildly shaped!

    ReplyDelete
  52. i love bare trees that show their essence.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Even the trees seem serene in such places.

    ReplyDelete
  54. actually wonder how the trees decide to curve right or left. they just form it beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Let's them grow. As in their natural element.
    That way they can grow their own way to reach the sun light.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like to take photos of trees when their leaves have all dropped off. They look so lonely and bare.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Brilliant minds think alike! :-)

    Beautiful blue sky with wild limbs.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think it takes maturity to appreciate trees without leave. They are poetic sculptures. What stories out of the past they could share with us if only they could.

    ReplyDelete
  59. You're not morbid at all! Wait til you see the cemetery we found a week ago! You'll like it I think. :)

    Love the tangle of trees!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Love it!Have a nice weekend:)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Lovely graceful limbs against a blue blue sky always catches my eye- as well. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love the twisted limbs and the color of the sky is so rich.

    Happy Friday Sandy.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was going to say it is clearly a picture of two trees dancing, when I saw the first commenter had already said that. But I wonder if it would have been as clear if you hadn't captured the movement in this frame, nice shot :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. They look like they're hugging or dancing, lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I finally get to see pictures at your blog again, after a while

    Lovely skywatch,
    what a blue there...and trees -- wonderful! :)

    wishes,
