Triplet tree--ABC Wednesday

This is actually, I think, three trees that have fused together. Their trunks (like all these t's?) have merged together and make for a quite impressive tree-in-one. On the left of these trees about 50 meters away and several meters below is the Sava River. The embankment where the passer-by is walking is a sort of dyke to prevent flooding of residences behind it. However, a couple of years ago after major rains, the Sava (and Danube too, of course) overflowed, and here the water reached half-way up the embankment.

I must be missing something -- all the red "t" letters. I like the tree which looks to be one with three trunks -- must have been cut off or damaged when one trunk, then two and finally three took off. Or something?

A nice photo in black and white with is that a person standing there between two of the tree trunks?

Ken said...

Neva said...

Your composition in triplet tree is excellent. I like when you put a passer-by as sense of scale. Cool.

Very clever "T" post!

"Louis" continued the theme of his "S" post with the "T" post. HERE is how he did it.

Bibi said...

Yes, the t's are red just because they're intial t's, nothing else. Could have made them green. This tree/trees is/are huge, and though the photo doesn't quite show it, really are entirely fused at their base.

If I close my eyes very fast and opens them again...I can see that the trees have faces - old faces.
Great shot:)

I don't know why, but that man behind trees looks spooky....Probably because contrast of colors, where ground and air behind trees is too bright, compared to black trees, so he looks like a ghost, flying in distance :D

P.S.: I've messed up my posts again, so moderate them please and remove this p.s. ;)

Bibi said...

Sorry, I don't moderate posts, so I can't delete your p.s.---but why?

That is a terrific photo.

I haven't been here before: nice blog. Blogging is so good for learning about other people and places.

I feel a bit like that dog-tired doggy in the last photo!

reader Wil said...

Well that's very fascinating those trees growing together like Siamese triplets.

Kelly said...

Terrific!
I really love this photo! The black and white really highlights the details in the bark!

raf said...

Yep, agree with Kelly, great contrasts in your b&w. Like the figure and structure between this urban nature shot too. From your posts, starting to learn the impact of the Sava on the city. Tricky text today, Bibi....tee hee.

Petrea said...

Quite a photo, Bibi. I love your work.

babooshka said...

Your description of the flooding made me think of a link Tomate Farcie shared with us over at PDP on April 4, 2008. Perhaps you remember barking at the rising water seemingly lapping at your feet.

Actually, there was a video but I can't find it.

The texture of your trees is fabulous, and I like the way you caught a building in one space and that man in the other.

The fusion of the three separate trees made me think of what are called "married pines" at a famous Japanese garden (Kenrokuen).

Feet? Did I say feet? Of course I meant to write paws!
