Wordless Wednesday – Looking up

When I saw your photo, I thought those must be beech trees, then I read that they are! The reason I can identify them so effortlessly is that I have an almost identical shot from our local beech forest – I like looking up too! I wish we had some blue in the sky though, we’ve had endless grey…
I am impressed that you IDed them by their crowns, even if you have a similar view! I am much better with trunks. Beech trees seem to command your eyes up I find, via those wonderful trunks … or down to their amazing surface roots. True Ents! Hope you get your blue skies soon.
The patterns formed by the branches look like neurons.
And they are learning all the time!
And watching ?
Oh, I love this– a beautiful image, so organic!
Thanks Eliza. And of course, as Sel says, it works best with a blue sky backdrop!
That’s a beautiful shot, Allison – and after seeing an aerial view of the beech in our neighbour’s garden I guessed beech too!
Well done! I hadn’t realised how like fingerprints such patterns were. I was trying the same thing in a copse of field maples yesterday and it was total different.
I always enjoy these sort of images. I was going to say just the same as LInda above. A neural network.
Interesting, very conceptual! I was thinking of eyeballs or drainage patterns 😉
