Sycamore Over Water

Sycamore Over Water

Another view from the Marsh. The sycamore tree is particularly beautiful in the winter season and one of my favorite trees to photograph.

  1. I have a huge Sycamore outside my bedroom window, such a wonderful tree. This is a lovely capture…

    • Thank you. Sycamore’s are fascinatingā€¦..they look so stark and beautiful in winter, especially contrasted against a bright blue sky. I’ll have to post some pics showing more bark. Here you can just barely see the fruiting bodies (or “button balls”) that never fell off last year. Certain trees just seem to “speak” to you, you know. Sycamore, Willow and Birch seem to call out the loudest to me (metaphorically speaking of course, I wish I could talk to trees for real, that would be fantastic). šŸ˜‰ Truly, all trees have an innate magnificence.

      • I’ve never seen another Sycamore tree other than mine, I don’t think they’re very common here in Minnesota. Mine sheds its bark quite a bit, I’m not sure if that’s normal or not, but it’s always been that way, and it only occasionally gets the little “dingle balls.” It’s a pretty old tree, my Grandpa planted it back in the early 1930’s, it’s almost like it’s a part of the house, and it feels like a guardian outside my window. There’s a hollow in it where I watched baby squirrels grow up last spring, that was such a delight! ā¤
        I know what you mean about "certain trees just seem to speak to you" I love willow and birch as well, but Sugar Maple are what "call out" to me in the fall, so vibrant with color! I love all trees, really though, and agree they all do "have an innate magnificence."
