skywards

A walk in my favourite woods, looking up through the branches.

The shapes remind me of pieces of a jigsaw neatly slotting together. My camera battery ran out of juice after the last photo, otherwise I would have taken more.

I always like these photographs. I took something similar when I was out today and thought of you. The sky was beautifully blue and clear all day - roll on spring.

Those pics would make a brilliant fabric design wouldn't they?! Lovely.

Love the clear delineations between the trees. I so rarely look up these days - thanks for reminding me that I really should do so.

I agree with Marigold Jam, wouldn't they just make a wonderful fabric design? Fabulous. I'm always looking up, don't want to miss anything.

sue said...

Absolutly agree with the other ladies those shots are begging to be turned into a fabulous fabric! I love looking up, there's always something exciting to see.

I love that!!! I always end up walking with my head up in the air, I find tree shapes like that so beautiful!

Simone said...

How strange that they almost fit together like a jigsaw. I think the pattern would make a lovely fabric! (Great minds think alike as I have just read that marigold jam has said the same!!!) x

Gina said...

Amazing photographs. We should look to the sky more often.

Nature just gets it SO right.

I love these set of photos! They look so pretty!!! xxx

Griffin said...

Hmm, are you sure these trees aren't planted upside down in the sky? With all their roots showing?

I love the way the gaps are so neat.

Brooke said...

Those pictures are fantastic! I love how things in nature mirror other parts ~ static electricity, roots.

I read somewhere that in the canopy of the jungle, the gaps are between the trees because of the monkeys jumping so often through the branches. Don't know if it's really true, but it's fun to think about!

Ali said...

Incredible pictures....so atmospheric and intricate...I imagine patchwork lace might look like this?! Must look up more often!

Harriet said...

What beautiful pictures. Remind me of feathers on the snow. How I miss tall straight trees living here on this windswept rocky outcrop!

I almost feel dizzy looking at these photos...they are wonderful.

Susan said...

Wow. These images are stunning - there's something ancient about them they're quite moving in a way.

BTW thanks so much for that link to eatweeds - I've added it to my post. It looks like a fantastic resource for recipes - thanks Diana!

Sue said...

Really really love these photos, wonderful evocation of the majesty of these beautiful trees. To see them all together is really something special.

The Coffee Lady said...

What amazing shapes - so angular.

Happy said...

I love these images. It amazes me how the trees leave just the same amount of space between branches ... And any backdrop of blue sky makes me smile :-)
Happy days to you,
