Thankful for Trees

For the month of November I am blogging about all of the things I am thankful for. I hope that no one minds that today I am also blogging for A Personal Photo Challenge. Yes, I am multitasking.

The Photo Challenge for November was “Trees”. How can I not be thankful for the beautiful trees in my yard.




(I played with the colors on this one.)
I took all of these pictures one October morning with my Nikon Coolpix S8100. I must admit that I am thankful for this great little camera. Easy to use, small, and I have beat it up pretty bad over the years, even forgot it in my pocket when I went in wadding up to my waist in Lake Superior. I am pretty sure the instructions said not to submerse it. Then there was the day I blogged about here, yet it keeps working for me.

Great way to multi-task! Love all of your beautiful tree photos...I am also very thankful for trees :)

Pretty trees, I really like the colors they offer you. :)

Jeanne said...

Beautiful blue sky, stunning colors and a trusty little Coolpix. Can't get much better than that!

You have some grand trees in your yard! I would be thankful too! I love the shape of that fir tree. Grand, just grand. But my heart goes pitter-patter when I see aspens. That third photo is my favorite, with a low perspective looking up, up, up. Nikon makes pretty good cameras, but I think you have really lucked out with it if you have gotten it submerged, LOL.

The Nikon is a good camera and you've taken beautiful photos. I love that big evergreen tree! Happy weekend! Hugs, Diane

I'm a tree hugger from way back and really appreciate the sight of a healthy clump of birch.

Love the trees in your neck of the woods. Have really enjoyed coming here and reading all about where you live. I love how your faith is out there for all to see and hear! Love the psalms every Sunday, and your month of thanks..well done. You are providing some much needed inspiration and motivation, as I rest and recover from the latest round of virus/cough/flu.. Thanks for popping in to see the trees at my place!

What lovely tree shots! Good for you for multitasking! :)

One of my daughters has a Nikon Coolpix and it takes crisper pictures than either of the other two (more expensive) cameras in the house.

Great to see these trees, I really love the tall ones with the interesting white bark! I don't get to see much besides pine trees where I live so seeing all these different types of trees in the photo challenge is amazing to me.

I too love trees! You have some great ones in your yard. I especially like the shot looking up the trunk of the... is it aspen or birch? Beautiful! Aren't we lucky to have the seasons and the changing colors?

Thanks for all the comments. For those who are wondering, here in the Northwoods, we don't have aspen, we have poplar. That would be what the two that I am looking up at are. The clump of three are birch. Birch don't last long here, they get all soft on the inside and fall over all of a sudden. I mean, literally. I was in the yard one day and heard a crash. Totally randomly one of my birch trees fell over. It was all rotten on the inside. I'm afraid one of this trio of birch is going to just drop over one day. I have fallen birch trunks lining my little trail in the woods. I guess then they are going to use and not to total waste.

You know I love trees & by all the postings you got, many do. We need to be in AWE of the beauty this planet offers us. As I drove home EARLY this morning (5:30 am) the light of the day revealed the light snow that fell & flocks of Sand Hill Cranes gathering to fly south, I thought of you because I know you would have stopped to take a photo & I couldn't because the batteries were dead in mine.

Angela said...

Those Birch (or are they poplar?)are really stunning- love the one looking up into the canopy.

Lorrie said...

I love the perspective in the third photo - makes one feel very small in comparison to the tall tree. I'm also thankful for trees.
