CBWC: Trees or Tree Parts

This week our topic is Trees or tree parts: leaves, branches, stump, logs, bark etc.

Becky, from The Life of B, is starting Square Challenge for July and her topics is trees. So please feel free to square out your photos for this week and join along with her as well. Oregon USA is known for its trees and logging industry. I’m going to have a lot of fun with Becky this month.

Be creative if you feel like it, and fun with this challenge this week. Remember your photos needs to be black and white, desaturated, sepia (brown tones) or selective color.  I’m looking forward to seeing what you all come up.

Please note that I have started a series of Tips from Cee page. I posted several tips for black and white you may want to check out.

Feel free to take new photos or dig through your archives.  The main object of this challenge is to have fun

  1. The fourth one made me smile – it seems like the tree is leaning on the telegraph pole, but my favourite is the header too.


  2. These are stunning photos, Cee. I can imaging them enlarged, framed, and decorating a wall (especially the first one).


  3. Hi Cee, as always a great choice of photos from your archive! 😊 My favourite is the second one, just love it!


  4. I love trees, have several books about them, but I love that second image the best. It is so powerful!! It is like you captured the essence of tree-dom.


  5. Ooo la la! These picture, especially the featured ones make me long to be driving along that road. It also could be an intro into a Twilight Zone episode – the ominous clouds and bare trees in black and white. Now I’m getting nervous.


  6. Hi Cee

    Your B&W trees have amazing texture! Well done. And the tree with the bulging belly is adorable and surprising – surprising that it grew so large with what could have rendered kt weak. And lastly, my eyesight is poor these days, but does that last capture show snow?? What a welcome sight snow would be.

    Here’s one from me with a B&W Heron and. A nesting island with many trees:
