Mediterranean Afternoon, France

I LOVE TREES and truly fell in love with these Aleppo pine trees along the French Riviera at Beaulieu!! The soft version of the photo I took of this tree reminded me so much of something one would see in an 18th century painting ............and here in THIS version - treated in Photoshop - one gets another feeling entirely. I wasn't familiar with these beautiful trees.....grand in the afternoon light along the Mediterranean! They have a softness and graceful way of growing. Their growth pattern is very lyrical, unlike the conifers I've grown accustomed to seeing in the American West like the Ponderosa pine, Bishop pine, Beach pine which have a classic straight and regal look.


Please see the description and the other version here:

Je crois que finalement ce sont les arbres avant tous que j'adore dans cette photo. Meme s'ils etaient presente's en noir et blanc je pense que je serais heureuse. - Signe' par une devotee des arbres, depuis longtemps! :-)
