We live at the at the bottom of what I like to call mini mountains (in reality they are just rather impressive hills) and at the very top of the mini mountains we can see two trees (we recently learned that they are in fact three trees, but from down below two look like one).
I never thought for a moment that we would ever be stood beside said trees, as the climb up to them looked impossible, but as the saying goes ”never say never”.
Last week on a walk to explore the Dragon Caves, we went one step further and climbed to the very top of the mini mountains, which was by far the hardest walk of the winter (to be honest there wasn’t much actual walking), I would say a better description would be climbing and scrabbling.
I have yet to sort through the photographs properly; I swear my finger must have got caught on the button, as once again I returned home with far to many pictures to even begin to justify. Luckily I had to put the camera in my backpack for most of the scrabble down, as I needed both hands, or there would have been far more..
However I did have a quick flick through the photos and these two photos of the trees stood out. It was a very hazy day and it was late afternoon when we started to climb down from the top. Before I put my camera away, I turned back and took a couple of photos of the trees, just for a memento of having been beside them.
My Photos Of The Trees
I used no filter and only cropped the images to make them more central. I really like the affect of the sun silhouetting the trees and I’m sure if there was no haze the photos wouldn’t have looked the same.
I plan to write a post on our visit to the Dragon Caves, just as soon as I’ve sorted the photographs.
Have you ever managed to get close to something you thought was impossible to get close to?
