*** CHALLENGE #279 - Trees

Firstly, appologies for going past the 48h hour deadline for posting but with the holidays in the UK I've not been around for a few days.

This is about my 3rd or 4th time in the challenge hotseat and I've always found it difficult to find a subject that is open to almost anyone. I think pretty much anyone should have access to a tree (unless you are unlucky enough to live on an island with no trees which I'm told do exist).

So post up to three of your best/favourite tree shots. So long as a tree or trees are the principle subject of your shot I don't mind. I'm hoping to also get some inspiration for myself as I've got a tree project to embark on myself. Hopefully this subject is wide enough for everyone to have something interesting to post.

Deadline is Saturday 11th May, 2019 at midnight GMT

The host gives you a topic and you post up to three images that fit.

The host chooses the winners and honorable mentions, and posts those in a new thread. The host's decision is final. Remember, it's all about fun, sharing, and learning. The winner of this challenge then hosts the next challenge, judges the winner of that one, and so on it goes. The winner of this challenge will have 48 hours to post the next challenge. If that doesn't happen, 2nd place will have 24 hours to do so, then it's up to 3rd place.

Submission Posting Guidelines

Challenge is open to any Nikon camera. Post each one of your three submissions in its own reply to this post. Give each post a unique Subject, like, "ENTRY: Tram in Lisbon". It's best to embed an image in its own post rather than linking from somewhere else (you'll get more views that way). If you want people to give you constructive comments and criticism, ask for C&C. Feel free to post photos "for exhibition only" if you want to share more than three or won't be available to host the next challenge, just let us know that in your posts, and title them as "Exhibition" shots. Please, NO LINKING IMAGES OFF SITE. You can do all the post-processing you want (except deleting out unwanted colours), but try to preserve the EXIF so we can see which camera, lens, and settings were used. If you know the EXIF won't come with the image, let us know that kind of stuff in the text of your post.

Comment Posting Guidelines

Feel free to post comments on the images but do be polite/positive. If you would give someone else's submission a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, click on the green "Like?" thumb on the top right of the post, so we know which images were most popular. The host will make up their own mind which images best fit their topic without being influenced by that.

Here are some examples of my own (of which I've got very few):
