One of London's finest - # 363B

(.....why the funny numbering # 362B? I realised my numbers were out of synch with the real number of posts. This is a balancing item.)

We are still with "Big Tree" shots. This plane tree is marked as being on of London's largest trees. As such it is rather difficult to picture. Stand too far away and you don't get an idea of the real size. Stand closer and all you get is a lump of wood but no actual "tree". On second thoughts, perhaps I should have placed the camera on the ground immediately under it. I snapped it last March, and my techniques have improved a bit since then. Anyway.....believe me, it's BIG.

Camera: Olympus C7070 WZ


  1. It looks like it is in a zoo!
    It needs to be set free!

  2. @FreeFalling....YES! You are right. It simply is not at it;s best here. How perceptive!

  3. Does anyone have any ideas about how old these trees are? They seem to be in the 200 to 300 years old category but maybe older???

  4. Another great tree although I was in love with yesterday's. this is a beauty tho - don't they trim the plane trees, Chuckeroon. Here in France they trim them right back in winter.

  5. Great pictures from the big trees!
    Amazingly it seems springs is already there...
    Have a great weekend!
