The Photo Gallery 214: Trees


The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man ~Author unknown

When you walk down this path, the trees line up like soldiers to ensure safe passage.
Their trunks are tinged with green moss, their ancient roots poke out through the undergrowth like creeping fingers. They tower above you. They’ve seen it all. Over many many many years.

This is one of my most favourite places to walk with the family and the dog. We’ve been going here for so many years the whole place feels like an old friend. Like a comfortable blanket.
We know each canopy, the best off-piste routes to take, where the mud is deepest, where the fallen trees offer the best places to climb and explore.

I have a deep love of trees. And walking in these woods is the best medicine I know.

The dog is a big fan too!

This post is for week 214 of The Photo Gallery: The theme is: Trees.

Now it’s your turn to link up your post and join in. If you’re new here and want to know what the Photo Gallery feature is, go and read all about it, and then come right back and join in!

Here’s how to join in

Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like.

Now share your photo. Write a blog post using your photo. You can write as many or as few words as you choose, but you should use your photo as the inspiration. You don’t even need to use a new photo; it can be something from your archives. Just a photo which you think represents the prompt.

 Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.

 Add a link to your post using the linky tool below. The linky stays open until Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.

Now go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have. It’s about going out and encouraging each other.

The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.

If you’re using Twitter you can find us on the hashtag #TheGallery.

 The Photo Gallery is also on  Pinterest and Google +
Follow Tara Cain’s board The Photo Gallery on Pinterest.

To ensure you don’t miss a prompt, you can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to have them delivered directly to your inbox.

Visit this blog every Friday to see what the new photography theme is for the coming week.

 PLEASE don’t link dump – this is not that sort of linky!

    We definitely have a mutual love of trees – I am captivated by them. Those roots are something else, aren't they? Your dog is particularly gorgeous in this photo too 🙂

    Lovely pictures of trees. The first one reminds me of the forest I go running to back home in the Czech Republic.

    I adore trees and taking photos of them, so I HAD to join up, despite being busy! Thanks for the prompt. And I love that shot – draws me in totally, and makes me feel like fairies are going to pop out from one of those trees! I so envy where you live 😉 PS Can you do a trees theme every quarter?!!

  8. I love your dog almost as much as I love the trees, he's gorgeous but so are the woods. I envy your walks, even in this weather 🙂

    This looks like such a peaceful walk. And one that deserves a hot cup of something nice when you get home.

    I love the roots and the slightly worried looking dog 🙂

    I always enjoy your ‘tree’ gallery posts and reading about your passion for trees. Your first photograph is absolutely magical and I adore the moss (I have a ‘thing’ for moss!). Of course I’m digging your fab dog pic too (handsome as ever and looking majestic and so content in his surroundings – very ‘King of the castle’ regal) x
