As usual, here are some photos from my Sunday walk looking for trees to inspire when creating bonsai.
These were taken at Redburn Country Park overlooking Belfast Lough.
Two strange blokes wandering around taking photographs of trees 🙂
A very old Rhododendron hedge that has collapsed on itself. Spooky looking!
A Beech with fused branches in all sorts of shapes. Some really nice Beech here.
Again, spooky. Wouldn’t want to walk up there in the dark!!
Some of the beautiful Beech.
Rooting into it’s own decomposing stump hollow. How about that for recycling
We spotted 5 different Rafts on the walk. Some lying side by side. They all look to have been blown flat at the same time many years ago.
Side by side rafts
This one might even be worth digging up!
Old Scottie with his head in the sun.
Long uro on an Ash.
Grain in an old rotting log.
Through and through
This beech has obviously been eroded away by some sort of infection. Nice hollows on the trunk now.
Wouldn’t be a walk without fungi 🙂 This old stump looks as if someone has been throwing frisbees about!
Ivy Seed heads
Miniature world under foot.
Stenna heading out of Belfast Lough
Hope you enjoyed the walk.
