PH: Twisted!

This week's Photo Hunt challenge was to capture something "twisted."  I am always in awe of the fascinating twists and turns in nature, especially those of trees - the trunks, branches & limbs.













Oh, yes, I'm also fascinated by twisted minds, but there were no pictures available!

Other twisted Photo Hunt shots are here.

Gorgeous trees!

Greta photos! Trees are just amazing. There's a 100+ year old oak in the neighboring lot, and it is HUGE, just huge. And we used to have Elm trees here, way back when; but they were wiped out by Dutch Elm disease in the 50s, after standing as giants for 150 years.

I hope you get the chance to see My Photo Hunt for today! Have a great weekend.

That second one is fantastic! I love all the twists and turns in the trunk and branches.

Sandra said...

Love all your photos of the old trees. Great choice for this weeks theme. I too chose trees of a different kind for my photos.

I love your trees--I posted one too :) If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

I love twisted old trees and you have posted some great photos of them. I always wonder how they get that way when other trees grow straight. Excellent interpretation of this week's theme. Thanks also for stopping by.

Great twisted photohunt. Amazing twists and turns!

Maya Gonzales Berry said...

I agree with you about twists and turns in nature. At first I struggled with the theme, and went with a tree also.

Great pictures! I love how trunks and branches are twisting and turning!

Oh! I love looking at twisted branches! One of my frequent dreams as a kid, was jumping higher and higher into the branches of huge old trees!

And when I see them, I still would love to climb up into them (even thought at my age...that would not be such a good idea! haha)

Blessings & Aloha!
