Great pictures – love the one with the rays of sunshine.
Here is my take on the challenge
I’m loving the 1st photograph, Cee. B & W is a wonderful challenge for nature photographs. I think
B&W lends itself to foliage of any kind. Hope your having a restful vacation. ~~~~ : – )
This photograph was posted for another challenge quite a while ago. The views were few.
With my limited time due to health, I thought I’d give it another showing. Thank you for hosting.
Such beautiful tree photos! I especially like the winter tree silhouettes in black and white. Enjoy your break!
I love it when my ping backs work, it’s a happy surprise everytime 😂
Been awhile since I’ve been here 😦

I love your challenges and here’s my entry:

The third picture is really nice. I also love the peak framed by trees. Here is mine:
Your mountain scenes alwsys take my breath away!
In this challenge I decided to play with selective color:
Took me long enough to put this together, I guess I’m still getting back from summer, too. Like your sepia bench and view.
Here is my view from a bench https://piecesofstarlight.wordpress.com/2016/09/08/cees-black-and-white-challenge-trees/
Hi and thank you for reading my blog. Hug a tree! In fact, it’s Autumn coming, my most favorite time of the year. A picture is worth a thousand words, as “they” say. Sometimes my “words” are petty good but a photo let’s one’s imagination fly beyond words! Keep on “click’n”.
You are so right about the “a picture is worth a thousand words. Thanks for commenting.
