P is for Pine

PThis year I’m participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge again. I thought it might be fun to share some of my photography instead of always my words. They say a picture is worth–well, you know what they say 😉

I will try to keep these blog posts short and sweet, while still offering a little bit of insight into each photograph, just for fun.

P is for Pine.

Well, actually that’s a little deceptive. I don’t know if these are all pine trees I took pictures of. They are all coniferous, but beyond that I can’t say. In my defense I grew up thinking all coniferous trees were pine trees LOL I was in my late teens before I figured out how wrong that was 😉

I took this one, which I call ‘Beautiful Disease’ in my front yard. There is a great “pine” tree there. It’s not healthy and I’ve been told by an arborist that we should cut it down but the birds still use it and he didn’t think the disease it had was contagious, so I resist…

The following two photographs, which I probably shouldn’t post back to back but I’m going to anyway, were taken in Nova Scotia:

And this last photograph I took last summer, during our very freaking rainy teepee camping trip.

    I love coniferous trees of all sorts 🙂 What amazing photos! Just beautiful!

  2. What gorgeous photos! We have two smaller coniferous trees in our front yard that are dying :(, I am also resisting removing them yet because they have a few bird nests in them.

  3. Pine trees seem very sensitive… I had to write an article yesterday about a company that creates wreaths using cuttings from the bottom third of each tree so it regenerates. Something about it being essential that the bough is preserved at the top.

      I totally didn’t know that. Very interesting… there are a couple homes in our neighbourhood with the tops lopped off their coniferous trees, I wonder if that means they aren’t going to be able to keep growing. Will be interesting to watch and see LoL

  4. I love the close-ups of the water droplets – absolutely beautiful!

  5. Gorgeous pictures. It’s amazing the amount of detail and care that goes into each little needle or cone. I think that’s kind of like us. We look around and see the people in our lives, not noticing the details that go into making that person the amazing being they are–at least, that’s what I’m taking from your beautiful pics today.

    Trees are so much fun and can offer some beautiful photos if done just right. I am in love with the black and white of the pine cones. I love how they come into focus right in the center. Great work!

    That first one just took my breath away. What a moment to catch.

    I’m glad you didn’t cut down the tree. Gorgeous photos, as always. I think I like the two b&w the best.
