Tree Bole

Remember the broken branch I showed you recently?

Here is a close-up of the bole of the tree at the point where it divides into two. The broken branch is attached to the left hand side.

I photographed the top of the same tree on Christmas Day when there was an Emirates plane flying over it.


  1. I always think trees can be so interesting when you look at them close-up, particularly the older ones. There's a fascinating one by the footpath leading from Morrisons to Halton Street alongside the motorway. It was obviously a little sapling when the fence between the path and motorway was laid down, and it's grown through the fence and is now intertwined with it. It would make a good photo, Gerald.

  2. Looks like a venerable old tree. Deserves our respect.
