Canopy Over Us.

By Tooma
I had another title in mind for this shot - For The Love of Trees - and as much as I really like trees, I don't want to give the wrong impression. Try viewing in FS.

Trees are such a brilliant invention; they take the CO2 we breathe out, strip the carbon off for their own use, and give us oxygen for our use. Then there is the multitude of uses for the wood, and all the powerful medicines - many of which the drug companies exploit - for our benefit of course.

Anyway, they are beautiful, and terrific, and smell great, and I like being in and amongst them. I shot this at Lanark Loch - more of a lochan(small loch, actually), and I have a few more shots from the trip - even a dragonfly - a rarity for me.

On a nice day like this, it's really good to lay on the ground and look up, such a relaxing sight.
I appreciate the value of trees too Tom...except when they are ruddy great oaks, that drop a ton of leaves on your garden, which all have to be picked up, then I hate them Grin. Pam

Those are very tall trees! Trees are part of our daily activities! Mine are dwarf in size by comparison!

There is so much living in this upper zone and they are good at staying out of sight. TG

Then all those leaves make great pics, Pam. I just leave them, and most get blown away, so they sort of, leave, by themselves. Smile
