ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " T"


Today is ABC Wednesday and the letter is " T ".
Tahoe Tree Trunks. I loved the weathered tree trunks at Lake Tahoe and thought they were a perfect choice for the letter T.
Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge and see all the wonderful detail in the wood.

Great to see someone else is doing the alphabet idea. To be honest...I think it was your ABC Wednesday series that originally inspired me to do the Toruń Alphabet series over at TORUŃ DP!!

You got a triple 'T' there.

Nice work.

They were all covered in snow when I was there. Lovely picture.

Hilary said...

Beautiful photo. I love the way one of the trees is watching over the landscape below.

Wonderful "T" post! Enlarging it really shows the detail nicely.

great textures in the trunk of the trees

Must have been a beautiful tree in it's youth!
Still very nice! Indeed, great details in the wood.

They are great - thanks for sharing!

I love this shot when enlarged, not only the tree, but the lake and the misty mountains beyond. Isn't it interesting the way new trees spring up to fill in when the old trees die? The cycle of life caught in your shot...

Old trees are like old people. Bent, gnarled, and grooved. I like old trees though as they have a character that is all their own.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Love the dead tree, and all the great knots it has on it, along with part of it still being alive.

Beverly said...

I love that. There is one near the country club where we used to have Christian Women's Club. The first thing I did when I went there was to look for the ospreys that were perched there, sometimes with a fish in their talons.

stark, yet elegant.... you can never go wrong with nature's artistry! it reminds me of a photo i took from the top of seneca rocks in west virginia.....

Stunner said...

Nice shot of this old tree trunk!

joan said...

Love the detail. Is that the lake in the background?

Merisi said...

Wonderful choice of subject! I love its weathered look, still standing tall after all.

Moi said...

that's a pretty alliteration ...Tahoe tree trunks :) and trees, bare or leaden always look beautiful....

hope your hubby is doing better, Sue :)

imac said...

Nice ABC tree, love it


Last post of the east coast

Annie said...

Aren't they spectacular? Wonderful photo, Sue.

I love this!!

Wendy said...

The tree takes on a life of it's own, even after it's life is gone. It has stood the test of time, age, and weather - and is full of character. Great photo!

Lara said...

beautiful picture!

This is another one begging for B&W. Since you're using Picassa, try the filtered B&W under the "Effects" tab. Play around with it. You can do a lot with the tones using this.

Peter M said...

I love taking photos of trees, this one of yours has great texture and winding branches, I wonder how old it is

AVCR8TEUR said...

Ha, both of us did our T's on Tahoe. Great minds think alike.
