Great shot Sue! Very soothing feeling from it. Just want to climb up in that tree...or lay down in the grass.
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but the heart as well. ~~Sheila

Thanks again Sheila! That was taken at a local park near where we were picnicking. There are hundreds of these lovely oaks around here, I just love their majestic beauty!

I loved this one too. It conveys the entire feeling of being there. Not too close & not too far.

That spot looks a lot like here. If I didn't know any better I would think it was taken in the deep south.

We have these cool huge oaks around here, some even with the hanging moss, like I saw in Florida.

Except for the absence of spanish moss, those photos could have been taken right here. It's so weird isn't it? I'm really glad the car is in the 1st photo to give the size perspective. That really shows you just how massive the oaks are.

I had just come from touring an iris nursery in Napa and had to pull over to take that shot, I waited for a car because I thought the same thing, it was needed to convey the size.
