Skywatch Friday

This week I thought I'd show you some photos of the Angel Oak tree in Charleston SC. Clink on the link to read more about it. I love the last photo the best, the way I took the photo looking up through the branches at the sky.

Its been years since I've visited Angel Oak...it was once a favorite picnic are for us, before the world found her and started removing bits and pieces as a souvenier. I understand she's fenced off from the world now. Pity that. Pity that people couldn't keep their cotton pickin' hands off her so we could all still picnic beneath her branches.

What a fascinating tree. I don't think I've ever seen an angel oak before; thank you for sharing this. I want to just scramble up there and look out over the view.

For a tree hugger, this is like disneyland for me. Oh how magnificent.

Omg, that tree is just amazing, the age and stories it could tell. Don't know what it is with me and trees I just love them.

What gorgeous photos, I just love nature. I have an old knarled tree I photographed one last year in Hertfordshire. If I can find it I will certainly link. Margaret

What an intriguing tree. It reminds me of sleepy hollow. Original choice.

That tree has lots of character. It could star in a movie! I agree with Amy that this could be an ent in a Tolkien book.

I love them all! But if I have a favorite it is the last one -- looking up at the sky through the branches! Breathtaking! Thanks for sharing!

There are a few "hairy trees" around here. I don't know if they're the same kind or not but the foliage growing on them are not part of the tree - must be some invasive plant that takes them over and stays green throughout the cold winter.

My own pictures of them didn't come out very well, though. Yours are fabulous!
