Pining away in Ocala


These beautiful pine trees (made out of WOOD!) on the Cross Florida Greenway in Ocala stand out with a certain wispy grace against a gray winter sky.

And I suppose these are made out of "pine" wood. LOL!!

A pine forest is not what comes to mind when you think of Florida.

They look as if they are 'pining' to have their photograph taken by you, Jacob. They are as graceful as dancers in this shot.

I like how the gray background makes the green stand out, nice.

Wood have to say I like this photo.

Nice THEM day photo, Jacob! Handsome WOOD them photo! Check out my THEM day photo coming up after 6 AM on Monday morning! Happy THEM day!

You made a great choice for today, J, they're beautiful. I love pine trees - although, I think I might be allergic to their pollen.

wispy green indeed. they look so soft but we all know better when it comes to pins. nice image for theme day. I hope all is well. thanks for your comments. i have been buried in work lately but trying to keep up with the blogging world. I hate it when work gets in the way of photos and photo blogs :)

Very feathery pines. Nice shot. Everyone already took my lines. LOL MB

VP said...

Your pine trees are wonderful and so... fluffy. I think even ours are made out of wood, probably pine as Chuck says!

Bibi said...

Ha, ha, for Chcuk's comment...and it is true, I don't think of Florida pines!

Lovely silhouettes...

B SQUARED said...

Interesting that people don't associate Pines and Florida. We certainly have a lot of varieties of them.

Andreea said...

Nice looking pines. So you do have grey skies once in a while? :) Soon you're gonna tell us it's snowing in Florida :)

Jarart said...

Yes, that would be wood!;) I wouldn't think of pines when thinking of Florida. Palms, yes, pines, no.

Lee Spangler said...

Lovely soaring photo.

Kcalpesh said...

Nicely composed! What's that effect on the photo?

Jacob said...

@Kcalpesh - So far as I recall, I didn't use any effect on this photo, with the exception of bumping up the contrast. I took the photo because I liked the way the pine branches looked against that gray sky.

Lois said...

They are pretty! We had pine trees in our yard when I was growing up and I remember they used to drop sap on the paint.

Trillian said...

Beautiful shot, it looks like a painting...

valeria said...

They look so fluffy and tender! Interesting choice!

Very wood-sy. The overcast sky does emphasize their shade of green - and their look of softness.

Very nice. That's all I got.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Indeed they ARE made of wood and I bet the aroma is wonderful too. I love the fragrance of pine.

Irina said...

Great theme photo! Green is so juicy. I feel the smell of pine and the move of the branches in the wind.

Daryl said...

Nice!!!!!

JM said...

So simple and yet such a beautiful photo!

This is lush Jacob, very pleasing to the eyes.
