Sunday Stills....Trees....Fall Colors

Part of an oak log left behind by our logger last year
Counting the rings

This tree was an acorn the year the farmer was born.
 It planted itself in an old apple orchard in the sixty acre lot

Some of my favorite fall colors

We like these too

Oaks across the river, caught in the sun at dawn

For more Sunday Stills......

Love your take on this challenge. Almost a shame to burn oak when it makes such nice lumber.

beautiful colors and what a great Oak that was:)

Great pictures TC,

Something about tree rings . . . when contrasted to our oh-so-human lives.

Shirley, thanks, we don't know why this didn't get taken when the logging was going on, but we weren't sorry to find several weeks' firewood. lol It's a big un.

Far Side, must have been a monster. I am not sure exactly where it stood, as our logger cut it, then left it in the apple orchard for some reason. Alan and I came upon it the other day when birding and hiking over the place. We have been burning it ever since.

Cathy, thanks, I was amazed at how young this tree was. You would think its rings would number in the hundreds...

Ed, thanks, it is pretty up here, although losing colors fast now.
