  1. This guy's been around a while hasn't he? I guess you don't live this long without encountering a few twists in the road.

  6. What a great old tree and I do relate to twisted! He does look as though he's working hard to reach the sky! Maybe there's a little of that in all of us! Terrific shot, Sandy, as always!

    Have a great weekend!

  12. These branches are like fingers reaching toward the heavens. How appropriate. Wonderful blue and great contrast with the branches. Thanks for sharing.

  13. I have an old oak out my sunroom window that this reminds me of and I'm always in awe of how it appears the 'arms' are reaching to the sky trying to embrace the clouds.
    Lovely Sandy! Perfect title.

  17. It does look like that tree's had a complicated life while the sky looks simple and calm.

  18. we are playing catch up with you guys in the east, our leaves are just changing colors, but pretty soon they'll be as pretty naked as this one.

    have a lovely weekend.

    I love old trees, the more twisted the better. Bet I could still climb that one!

  32. Beautiful. The stories that tree could probably tell...

    (Sorry for not being around too much this week - I just spent the past two days preparing for the opening my new etsy store - my head is still spinning!)

  41. Sandy: Your tree reminds me of the Sir Walter Scott's saying on the twisted web.

    ReplyDelete

    Have a great weekend!

  44. Great shot, with nice contrast, Thanks for sharing. Have a nice SWF

  45. Not so much a twisted life as one that has reached out in many directions. There is much to be said for being a branch on a much larger tree. One is that it enable you to get closer to the sky.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wonderful image of the impressive tree, Sandy. That white cloud in the blue sky adds beauty to the composition.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Very nice picture, love the contrast tree/bleu sky.

    Done a good job!

    Happy SWF

    ReplyDelete

  51. Nice capture. It made me think this: if you could talk tree what could you tell occured under your branches, like lovers kissing, children playing, a baby sleeping, an anxious person thinking and wondering, etc. If only trees could tell their stories.

    ReplyDelete
  52. That is a beautiful old tree. I was thinking exactly what Jack and Joann wrote... If only trees could talk, what pieces of forgotten history would we learn. :)

    Have an awesome day!
