Weird trees

We’re used to seeing trees growing at strange angles here in the Cape but these trees are especially odd. At the end of the Alphen Trail is a woody area with pines and among the trees that mostly grow normally are some that seem to have had a bad start in life and never quite came right. I’ve walked there many times but only noticed this very recently. It was getting dark so the photos aren’t quite award winning but you get the picture anyway.

The only explanation I can think of is that at some point these trees were overcrowded by others which are now gone.

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
