They make a fine-looking couple, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes lovely shaped trees.
those trees seem to have been around for a while now. they fill out the frame nicely
Brian Walbey: I imagine they are quite old Ayush, long may they remain there.
Lovely, lovely!

These look like oak trees in their final colour
Brian Walbey: Yes I believe they are Chris, aren't they fine shapes.
Back in time, to autumn
Brian Walbey: We good do with that sort of weather today Chantal, it is awful here with heavy showers.

Fabulous, such big big tree's smile
Brian Walbey: Yes aren't they fine trees.
You are clearly getting some good results with your little Fuji Brian
Brian Walbey: I was pleased with most of the shots on this day Bill but indoors it isn't up to much, very poor flash, and of course no viewfinder!!!
Wonderful trees!
Brian Walbey: Yes aren't they lovely Tom.

Right, that's far enough, let's go home.
Brian Walbey: Sorry Chad, I've some more nice trees to show you yet so carry on walking along with me for just a few more days smile
Lovely oak trees reaching their arms to the sky. A very nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, they are really nice shapes and will no doubt look good in winter without any leaves at all.
They are keeping each other company through the years Brian. It looks like it was a lovely day
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely afternoon Janet and these two looked really good atop the rise as I walked along.
Beautiful specimens, Brian! I'm curious to know if you are walking on public paths or do you walk across private property.
Brian Walbey: A lot of the centre area of the estate round the main house is now private but this is on the main drive looking over to one side, indeed out of picture below the trees is a wire fence to keep animals in.

Classic Brian - why we never tire of our countryside.
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more with that sentiment Mike, when we had to move to the East Midlands in 1989 with my job, from Cambridgeshire, we weren't all that keen, now we realise how lucky we are to be surrounded in all directions by some magnificent countryside away from Nottingham, Derby and Leicester.
Fine looking oaks Brian, a lovely shot!
Brian Walbey: This part of the East Midlands is quite famous for its Oak trees Martin, they are everywhere.
... and a fine meomory Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed, thanks Richard.
Fine trees, always great to see them against the sky
Brian Walbey: Yes they look good any time of year John.
I love trees of all shapes and sizes, and every winter I decide that I like them bare best. Come spring I change my mind again, of course.
Brian Walbey: Some of the big trees round our way look great in the Winter without leaves, just a very shapely skeleton of branches.

England's finest oak trees. Our Empire was built around these and used by our Royal Navy (and vast quantities went into the building of Winchester Cathedral.

I always try to carry a camera with me wherever I go. A camera on the phone is better than no camera at all.
Brian Walbey: Your right about England's tress Alan, we have a lot round our way.
A beautiful trees curtain Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes they are lovely aren't they.

With your camera, even a short walk is very productive, Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes this was only a short walk Lisl, we were on our way to Calke Abbey, a NT place, but went here instead.
There's some fine countryside round that way,Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed we have a lot of beautiful countryside round my way Graeme, it came as a pleasant surprise when we moved up here in 19189.
