Oh ja, der ist wunderschön 🙂
Definitiv, Andreas. Dass er einfach so in einem Wald stehen kann, ohne geteerte Zufahrtsstraße, ohne Kiosk, ohne Müllhalden außenrum macht ihn noch attraktiver.
Ein Traum von Baum – da steht man ehrfürchtig davor!
… und perfekt inszeniert: Man/Frau wandert durch Hohlwege, und wenn man die Lichtung erreicht und aufblicken kann, sind die Äste schon über einem/r.
Some trees are truly majestic. This is one of them. It reminds me of a beech tree I photographed near my house. Nicely done.
Thanks, Cemal. Trees have not without cause so much allegoric significance: The fact that they live so much longer than we humans do, is certainly one: Those oaks are around 400 years old, so they started to grow when Europe was devastated by the Thirty Years’ War, shortly after the end of the Holy Roman Empire. What times they have seen!
Wonderful photo, Markus, well done. The only times I have seen trees like this are Oak trees in Texas.
Jeff, these trees are certainly exceptional – I don’t remember having seen such enormous and old specimens in Europe. Having visited them in Autumn meant that we were fairly alone, wandering along a hollow way, and when we reached a clearing, the tree was already above us. Awesome!
Marvelous. What an expansive ‘gesture’ the tree makes.
Thanks, Carl. Especially during my travels to Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe I’ve seen many huge trees, but these ones here in Krk provided a special experience due to the fact that they were so much embedded in the surrounding forest of much much smaller trees.
