Clinging Tree


Clinging Tree
This tree looks like it's clinging on to the fence in case someone tries to pinch it. Albion Bungalow, Top Lock in the background.

Yes Helen me to, the clue is looking out for the name Dennis Seddon (Sony DSC-WX200)

This just shows how much more powerful nature is compared to anything man made. I wonder how long it will be before those bars bend. Reminds me of an old twisted tree behind my garden fence!

Uncanny.  Walked past this very same spot yesterday am and stopped and examined this phenomenon - of trees enveloping metal items!

Well done Dennis, typical of your approach. Always look on the bright side. Don't change do you !!.

No 'Sally garden' that's for sure, just 'a garden with a willow wanting solace' - the tree showing stress avoidance. Yet from fatigue comes fortitude, and from this fellow's monumental wrap, stability to his neighbouring rusty fence - a far cry from wounds of wanton mock ... number-plates and things.

I wonder how old that tree is?...how long has it stood there in all weathers?

No Mick, you are wrong there....its the pic I see before I look at the name of who took it...same with DTease's pics.

Comment by: Mick on 2nd July 2020 at 23:20

Well I cant tell who as taken what until I see the name.

Comment by: Arthur on 3rd July 2020 at 08:57

I can with the photo quality and great scenery. Dave 0y stands out out above the rest.

Arthur by making comments like that you could be putting off Wiganer snappers submitting to PADs, who dont have state of the art camera equipment and computer skill to get photos like what you like.

Comment by: Arthur on 3rd July 2020 at 13:16

Mick fair do's but my point is "you can tell who has took the photo before you look at the snappers name". Frankly, I like them all, but sertin ones stand out.

Comment by: Mick on 3rd July 2020 at 13:43

Go and have a look at todays photo Arthur, and have a guess at who snapped it.

Comment by: Arthur on 3rd July 2020 at 17:04

But I already know now, look mick I'm not falling out with you, you have taken some great photos in your time.
