Sandra Bartocha - Beech Cathedral


That is a special tree for me. I’ve photographed it in every season because I like the descending trees in the back and the beautiful curtain of leaves in the front.

    i love the green of leaves with the blue of tree trunks ... soothing.

    Very nice indeed! We used to do this on a tree in Uganda hoping it would survive the population grow there each time we passed it on our way to Murchisson NP

    @ Jost - thanks.
    @ Rob - I think it's a great way to document change if you come back to a certain point again and again. :)

    And I thought I was the only person who re-visits specific trees! This is a wonderful photo, you should be very proud. I love it. I hope to see it enlarged as a poster on the side of a building one day!

    Hello, I am sorry to tell you but I found someone that has stolen your photo on facebook and placed his copyright on your photo. He has done this to 4 of my photos and I contacted Facebook. You may want to do the same:
