They Kiss The Sky

As you are all probably aware by now, I love trees. I love the way their silhouettes decorate the background of the sky or water. I love the way the leaves and branches sway in the wind and their fragrance that emanates throughout the gardens as I pass them. I am always trying to capture tree tops with the sky as their canvas. The other day while trying to capture the top of a redwood, which I will post later in the week, I almost lost my balance as the tree was a giant within the redwood trail. I hope you enjoy these photos and as always they were taken at the botanical gardens.

I love just looking up through the trees. They never cease to amaze me. Your photos are lovely but be careful taking those pictures :)
Absolutely stunning... you & I share that love of nature. And we're always pointing our cameras at the sky aren't we? Gosh, I have been so busy that I need to take time to get out there with my camera. Merry Christmas!! :D

I love trees too, Joanne! :) But I'm not sure if it's very much because of their shape and silhoetee against the sky and water, etc. But I am sure of this- they make for the best climbing! I would climb and climb the trees in my backyard when I was little, and find myself in storybook worlds!!!!!! :)

Trees are doors into magical places.

Trees are so beautiful and, traveling, it is wonderful to see the diffences in various parts of our planet. I love going home to Georgia in the spring ( seldom am there at that time ) when the dogwoods are in bloom beneath the soaring pines, a source of so much beauty, in pink and white. I can barely keep my eyes on the interstate! Also, in the Caribbean, I love the huge green breadfruit trees and the giant mango trees.

That's funny, I almost fell over today while taking video of the top of a tree full of birds.
