Hello Dawn. I like the trees and how the branches of both takes us all over the image. It remind me of a spider web at the very top of the frame. I think using the flash would had given the trunks a bit more light, though the darkened logrs create a nice contrast with the pale sky. Well compose image with excellent sharpness and fine colours. I like the effect create by the trees and the way they create a pattent on the sky. Thanks for sharing.

Great shot of these beautiful trees, reaching high into the sky. Good pp-work too, one can hardly tell.. My aunty in NZ has completed our family genealogy book, it is very interesting. Hope you can complete yours one day. Well done, TFS! Greetings from Bianca.
Pleased to have another get bitten by the gene bug. Sorry Dawn but there is no cure and it only gets worse, the more you find the more you dig and then oh gosh was I meant to have cooked dinner? Dad gave me a huge head start when he gave the tree to me to take over as he had started it back in 1982 and all trios back to NZ included mind games with cousins etc and he would return to Qld like a kid with a new toy. Actually I am not sure which is worse, genealogy or photography. (both so much fun)
I love your trees,

Even though I have seen many more beautiful images of your site, I had to remark on this image as I noticed an image that you titled," enjoying the sight, LOL".
So with this image, I thought I would attend my focus in thanking the family trees from not being grafted somewhere along its route into the heavens above and becoming "One" family tree.
I have always liked peering skyward through the branching arms of trees, my favorite was one that I kept manicured for about 15 years, an English Walnut that was about 60 years old. The incredible soft light and the massive limbs made one feel very miniscule when standing beneath its strength, I miss it greatly every spring and summer...
Have a Great weekend and week ahead.

I like your angle on shooting the trees. Nice sunlight hitting the trunks, lovely blue sky, etc... I need to start looking UP more at the trees instead of straight on.
I know a bit about my family tree too.... My dad has his parents family tree that goes back for some time, but it's all in Greek!! I went to Ellisisland.com and found the ship that my mom's dad came over from Cyprus. Interesting to find.
