anticipation

keeping very still



dormant
expectant
vigilant



silent with anticipation



no impatience



waiting for the green

Whoa! They are magnificent trees!

Amazing trees!

Gledwood said...

How amazing... and what a coincidence! I was photographing treetrunks on my cameraphone only this morning!!

Lynne said...

Wonderful photos of such majestic looking trees! What kind of trees are they?

I am trying to think green thought but it's hard when your whole world is WHITE outside your window. We were buried in 2+ feet of snow last week. Needless to say, it's still here!

Thanks for reminding me that spring can't be too far away.

Barbara said...

I guess the trees have to just take it on faith that their greenery will come back each spring. It must seem like a long wait as they hang out nakedly waiting.

AmyLK said...

Those are beautiful old trees! it won't be long before they are green and leafy again.

Betsy said...

Those are amazing! What kind? They look like huge elephant legs.

Reya Mellicker said...

Those are some gnarly dudes! If they can be patient, I can be patient. Oh yeah!!

Wonderful, deep, and still.

Whorls within whorls...I think there may be a few dryads in those.

Giulia said...

Letty--wonderful shots & yes, waiting impatiently here,too. The tree looks patient, though.

Do you mind saying where you took these? I'm reading Andrew Motion's bio of Keats & it just immediately put me in mind of Hampstead Heath. (Though obviously, big old twisted trunk trees are everywhere near you.)

As I cycled into work this morning I realised I hadn't said anything about where I took these.... I shall add something in the post. Anyway, they were all taken in Greenwich Park, and they are sweet chestnut trees.

I see so many faces in those tree trunks.

Waiting for green, what wonderful old trees. They've seen many winters and springs and with luck will see more...A beautiful celebration of life and the seasons.

Tom said...

Brian Miller said...

The colour green has a wavelength of 500 to 565 nanometers in the visible spectrum. It comes in several shades. An interesting fact is that the human eye is able to easily discern the green colour from long distances.

I have a nice pair of green socks.

lettuce said...
