Bitter twist

Well ive posted pictures of it before, but it was calling me on Sunday morning so it had to be done.
at least i walked around the wall and on to the moor so i could get a lower viewpoint. Wink not so many do. its an old friend this tree, ive known it 30 years and it never looks any older.
thanks for looking Phil


Have a look large just to see if it looks the same.

Mine was the one pressed against the wall Phil, mainly because I didn't have time to get over it, as the light was stunning for seconds only! Like the low viewpoint though, I was thinking recently of having another go, but many morepeople seem to have had the same idea. Wink

It never looks the same - but that's the moor for you! I like both of these - I'd be more than happy to have either in my pf.
You aren't the only person to call it bitter and twisted - but there's joy in them there branches, just see!
Beautiful, the color contrast, and the posture of your old friend.
