The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
For the first time I almost forgot. So I’m two days late. I got home in the dark yesterday so photos weren’t happening.
Very strange as I’ve been very aware of the seventh each month up until now.
(Ironically the host, Lucy, of this meme got caught short too though. )
The weather has changed dramatically in the last three days. We’ve suddenly got autumn temperatures and the wind has picked up. There’s been lashing rain and lightening squalls.
The tree is stoically ignoring the conditions. She’s happily standing proud and keeping her leaves so far.
I thought it would be interesting to use my macro lens on the lichens.
There’s quite some variety. Scaly, feathery and leafy structures adorn the trunk.
Different colours and different levels. It’s fascinating.
I also wanted to give an impression of the trunk so used panorama to do this.
She’s an amazing tree!
