One of the many ancient chestnuts on the path up to Croft Ambrey. They have an incredible presence which is really hard to capture
Oh I think you may have managed it with this shot Grouser. I wonder if it was a tree like this that Tolkien was looking at when he came up with the idea of ents !

Majestic and historical looking. I know what you mean about their presence versus what a lens and sensor can actually record. Trees are about close contact!

Wonderful capture a real success.

A fine capture of the rough, rather old textures in this marvelous trunk. Fine shot.

I love these old gnarly trees that have so much character.... they keep going on no matter what the weather. Those roots must travel deep and far. It reminds me of those trees in the movies that come to life. A very fine capture, I like!!

A Woman,a Dog and a Walnut tree, the harder you beat them the better they be, it looks like this old fellow has had a right battering down the years, but it's certainly given you a better than average picture.
