Skywatch Friday: Oh, Sycamore

Photobucket
I love sycamore trees. Their bark adds so much visual interest when all the trees are bare.

To view skies from around the globe, visit the Skywatch Friday site. Have a good weekend, all.

Good sky watch, and I agree with the trees the bark sets them apart from the trees we have here in the north.

That is a beautiful SWF shot. Great color contrast against the blue sky. I like Sycamores too. We have a lot of them here in California. I like the shape of their leaves, but in autumn they don't really change their colors as brilliantly as some of the other kinds of trees, like maples or mulberries. Hi from Norcal.

Great shot. Looks like you having some nice weather where you are.
I don't mind sycamore tree's except for having to clean up the bark when it peels off our neighbors tree and blows into our yead.

I love sycamore trees, too. I love their seed pods, that look like dangling earrings to me.

I love Sycamores, they seem to be happy trees and their bark is intriguing & this picture is a great way to view a sunny blue sky, thank you

Kate, that is a lovely capture! Sycamore trees are very cool with thier almost spotted looking bark. Very cool!

Mary said...

Oh, I love sycamores, too. We have one that is really too close to our garage, but I can't bear to cut it down... I love their huge leaves -- always the last to appear and the first to turn.

Have a great weekend, Kate!
