Spooky Trees – My Sunday Photo – 4/11/18

Hello everyone. Seeing at this weekend fits neatly between Halloween and Bonfire Night I thought I would have a load of photos to choose from. However the opposite is true so I have actually chosen a picture that I took a few weeks ago when Mr A was on holiday.

One day we took a visit to Caldicot Castle. I’ve shared pictures of this castle (and many others) before so won’t bore you with more. However we did see this rather magestic looking tree while we were walking around the grounds of the castle the other week.

I Love the way the light and shadows fall on the trunk and branches.

A large beach tree, looking up at the bare branches.

Although Halloween was the furthest thing from my mind when I took the shot I think it is definitely quite spooky. And this was in broad daylight, imagine if I had taken that picture at dusk.

Thank you, Mrs A Xx

    I love the roots, especially, I bet it looks really sinister in twilight, and later on … spooky indeed! #MixItUp

    Oh I love trees too. They are a real joy to the senses aren’t they, especially at this time of year, you can almost smell the history in their branches. #mysundayphoto

    You don’t often think about it, as we tend to be admiring the beauty, but trees such as these must have quite a rich history – especially being on a castle grounds. Great capture #MySundayPhoto

    Trees are truly amazing and beautiful, even when they are spooky looking. They are like old twisted beings that have been around forever. Great photo!

    it amazes me how these trees grow with so much root above the ground and how they don’t fall over #mysundayphoto

    That is a rather spooky looking tree Tracey. I think you should return at dusk to see what it’s like.

    Hi Tracey, it’s a very old looking tree, can you imagine what the stories it could tell?. I can almost imagine it coming alive at the stroke of midnight!

    This really is spooky all on it’s own without any dressing up, I expect on a misty morning even more so.

    I’m always fascinated by old trees such as this one that have such complex arrangements of branches. They always seem quite regal – as if they have presided over centuries of history.

      I would like to think this one has seen some serious history. The castle was once owned by Thomas of Woodstock the youngest (troublesome) brother of Richard the Lionheart and evil Prince John.
