ABC Wednesday: "O" is for Oak Tree

ABC Wednesday is an easy choice for anyone that lives in the Southern United States - oak trees are everywhere.  Their long, gnarly, twisted branches, often draped in moss or ferns, make for great photo subjects and provide plenty of great shade to escape the hot southern sun.

This particular oak is found in Bulow Plantation State Park near Flagler Beach, Florida.

Visit Mrs Nesbitt or the ABC Wednesday anthology for all the ABC Wednesday fun.

I'm leaving at tropical country but I don't think we have Oak trees here.
Timber such as belian and meranti is very expensive here.
By the way you have nice shot for letter 'O'.
Have a nice day.

Those old oak trees are beautiful. To think they outlive us all. I need to take a picture of the that Old Tree downtown. Your post reminded me if it.
