Friday My Town Shoot-out - Honouring Trees

This week's subject for the Friday My Town Shoot-out is Honoring Trees
- chosen by Gingerv.

I have decided to honour them by looking at their bark.

Swamp Cypress



Paperbark Maple

Chile Pine (monkey Puzzle Tree)

Tasmanian Blue Gum

Silver Birch

Silver Birch

Chusan Palm

London Plane



Have you ever thought about the fact that no two trees in the world are identical?

  1. What great news that you've been out walking the neighbourhood! Every day in every way ....
    Keep up the good work!
    Love to you and Jo and Richard, Carol & Rob

  2. Oh I like your take on this theme. Each one is just beautiful. Thanks for a great post.

  3. Wow, I never realized just how varied and interesting bark can be.

  4. You have the eye of an artist, Scriptor. Great shots.

  5. I like to look at the bark of trees too. You have some great texture-y shots of a wide variety of trees; I really enjoyed it.

  6. Interesting! some have such beautiful pattern.

  7. So glad to hear you are getting out and about. Love your approach to this topic. Can't believe how different the barks are and the Silver Birch looks like it is decked out in ribbons.

    Word verification is abled - that's you now, huh?

  8. Awesome pictures of trees, I never grow tired of looking at trees. Have a beautiful weekend.

  9. Glad you are able to get out again. I love the focus on bark. Such interesting examples.

  10. Your photos certainly do trees honour, Scriptor. Several of these trees are new to me, which certainly adds to their interest.

  11. Amazing tree shots.

    And super wonderful that you've been out walking. I'm assuming that you have lots of flat places to walk around.

    In a couple of months you will be happily suprised at yourself - just like my dear Mum 8 years ago.

    8 years on and our dear patchwork quilter is full on, and our equally dear quilter's husband still does the maths for her. (Last year my Folks celebrated 50 years married - which would'nt have happened without Mum's double bypass in 2002).

    All this wonderfulful recovery and Springtime for you too!!

    So well deserved, sending care and healing huggles to you, Jo and all the family,

    Michelle and Zebbycat in Wgtn, NZ

  12. You're shots of all the different types of bark are really cool! Its amazing how many different kinds there are

  13. Just like people, they're all different - even when they're clones!
    Wonderful look at treeskins, Scriptor.
    word: "grothe" !

  14. Simply beautiful! Each of it's own "fingerprint" and beauty.
    Love the last photo....

  15. What a wonderful post! Thanks for a different view of so many kinds of trees!

  16. Oh what fun..I always love your posts!! So much different there! I love the camo tree..hiding in the forest LOL! Beautiful shootout!

  17. A great way to honour them!!! So many different barks. I loved all of them!

  18. Thanks for all your positive comments and for your good wishes.

  19. interesting way to present trees. loved it! my fav would be the Yew, very unusual. I like different!

  20. all your photos are great - that yew is phenomenal - to be that large it must be hundreds of years old. I had one that was only 50 years and was barely 6 inch diameter.
    glad that your health is improving.

  21. Really like your focus (pardon the pun) on bark - the paper maple is lovely.

  22. Love these pictures, especially the perspective of your last one! I love to feel all the different tree bark, and usually find that's what my eyes are drawn to as I walk through the woods.
    Thanks for your comment on my Country Roads post :o) Have a great week.

    Lots of Love from Canada
