The Tuesday tree: green on green

September 24, 2013

Looking up in a mixed woodland, a temperate rainforest in Perthshire. Mostly beech, some sycamore and oak, growing above a river; branches leaning out over the gorge to catch the September sunshine and the soft rain.,24.913-1

Beech canopy in springtime, with Philip Larkin’s poignant poem on a similar theme, can be seen here.

    Quite magical. I was in Rocky Mountains over the weekend and the aspen trees were beginning to turn. They are like shimmering gold.
    Leaves can be such living art work

      I would love to see the aspens turning gold in the Rockies one of these days…
