Trees... and wide open spaces

 A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he 
plants shade trees under which he knows full well he will never sit.
D. Elton Trueblood
 I adore trees.  In fact I adore wide open spaces with gorgeous trees and the odd hill 
or mountain.  I think it's a childhood memory from living on my grandfather's farm.
  Here are three images from various outings in the country.   
Even standing on their own, one or a few, they have such presence, 
they demonstrate such strength ...

The trees are so simple and solitary. Reminds me of a Rembrandt drawing of the woods. He used lots of white space.

Solitary trees do speak of strength. Your photos are wonderfully powerful, and your quote reminded me of an 80 year old friend who loved to plant trees for those who would come after him.
