Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera April 2nd 2008. Click image for larger view.
After a period of not taking any pictures I got some inspiration today and went out on a photo trip.
I found an area where some Scots pine trees (Pinus sylvestris) were growing wild. I really liked the form on this little tree and the snowy scenery made a good background for a picture. The mountain peak is many kilometers away, but I used a zoom lens to make it look closer.
Scots pine is the only pine tree species growing wild here in Norway. It can reach 40 meters and there has been found trees that are over 800 years old.
Check out this picture of a lonely birch tree standing in a marsh filled with mist. It’s one of my personal faves 🙂
