This week’s topic on Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is Trees.
A new angle on a palm tree, dwarfed, waiting for the coconut to fall. This isn’t a coconut tree so that was highly unlikely, just as well.
Lying down on a bench next to the beach, looking up at these lofty fronds. Still no coconuts, just as well.
Nature shaping nature – the force of the desert wind moulding the weaker tree trunk into a new shape.
Dry branches on the brink of new Spring growth.
One of the beauties of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

I have always loved to see the palm trees in their green colour, I must admit they look so natural even in black and white. It goes to show that black and while photos still have a good effect.Nice photographs.

These particular photos make good black and white photos due to the texture of the fronds. I’m still new to black and white photography. Thank you for your compliment, I greatly appreciate it :-).
Very nice! I love the overlapping palm fronds, the skewed conifer, and I’m a sucker for giant tree trunks.
Thanks Cathy! The skewed conifer is also a favourite of mine 🙂
Your trees are wonderful this week. I like the slanted one over the house.
Thanks Cee! I’ve been to my friend’s place in Namibia a number of times, but it was only during the last visit that I went for a walk and saw the tree from that angle for the first time.
