Cool.....wonder what kind they are!
3 years ago.
Ecobird has replied to Sharon Bonj
Thank you Sharon. Much appreciated. I have tried to find out and I think they might be hazel but I am happy to be corrected. Another idea was birch because of the silvery bark. I just loved the way they were all twisty. Reminded me of the game of Twister the children used to play

They look as if they have been coppiced at some time but I don't know if that would explain the twisted trunks. They make a very interesting image.
3 years ago.
Ecobird has replied to Jean
Thank you Jean. Yes you may well be correct, - When I was trying to find out what they were it was suggested they may be coppiced hazels. I do love the strange twisted shapes whatever the reason for them being that way. Have a great week

Heehee, lovely craggy trees, I would not want to be here at night when they're making the horror movies, lol! A fabulous photo of them!

Ha-ha! You are so right, -the crooked shapes are intriguing in the day but would be quite scary at night. I have an over active imagination at the best of times.

Thank you Kate. Have a great week

I can imagine them with the wind howling around...

Wonderful example of adapting and surviving! I think this would look good in Mono too.
Love the tones here, and that quite soft light. Excellent composition (as always)
3 years ago.
Ecobird has replied to Joan+
Good evening Joan. Thank you for your lovely comments. I think that it would work in mono as you say. In fact my elder daughter as a child had a beautiful fairy story book illustrated throughout with silhouettes and this would fit right into those story book pictures in silhouette.
The trees have that enchanted forest feel. Oh dear, listen to me - I only started with intriguing twisted trees and now I'm best friends with the darker side of Disney! Lol!

I don't think I've ever seen trees like this Carol and certainly don't know what they are. Perhaps they've escaped from a Tolkein book. Lovely image.

Tortured nature, could be a Contorta variety of the Hazel?
3 years ago.
Ecobird has replied to Roger Dodger
Good evening and thank you Roger. It could be, - I did wonder if it might be Atlantic hazel as I read that these are grown in Scotland. I just don't know, - I just thought they were curiously attractive. Thanks for the suggestion. Have a lovely evening
