Haha-I've been looking at the weather forecast for weeks-it's grey, with more grey, that sometimes goes light grey, or dark grey!

I like the naked trees standing out on the sky, particularly when they are twisted as those there

I like the crinkly look of the branches silhouetted against the sky. Even gray days can result in fine shots!

With just a little squint, I can imagine those as tree monsters coming to get me. Nice silhouettes and just enough blue to make the sky interesting.

Cool shot! It has a Tim Burton/Neil Gaiman feel to it.

A great grey day of beauty with those wonderful trees, as if painted on some old
Satsuma vase, they are gorgeous.

Looks like a bad hair day. These clouds are the best for shooting trees. Very nice, Jack.

I love trees so much, those arms waving in the winter sky are very touching, tortured or just dancing, their blackness is beautiful.

that tree of life has done a lot of zigging and zagging on the road of life, hasn't it? :P

Don't you just LOVE the lines of branches in the old oaks when the sky above is white and blue. Nothing prettier than that. Nice you got some blue in the sky for a change, Jack.

15 Jan 2011 11:19pm

@LauraS: there certainly is none today (rain, rain, rain)

There is has been sunny all day makes everyone doesn't look like this tree will be putting forth leaves for a long time--if ever. Nice shot.
