Wow, these are some imposing trees, oak, I suppose? Such beauty may only be achieved, when man abstains from interfering for the better part of a century. You can count yourself lucky to have such protective giants in your neighbourhood.

amazing. no wonder there are whole religions devoted to trees up that way. How could you NOT deify a tree like that?

They are amazing, aren't they? Almost liquid, like lava formations. I wonder if they were coppiced once long ago and then abandoned for a century or two, the way they look like several trunks braided together. I see a lot of trees here that look like that, and have a theory about it ... and started to write a lot more before realizing that's a whole nother post.
