A fitting name to the golf course at least the oak part.

belle photo, avec une preference pour la version couleur. Bonne soiree du superbowl

They looks very different to me, even though they are likely the same photo. It's interesting to compare the two.

Like the b&w version. Those two oak trees look like golfball magnets.

This is probably the first time I see an oak tree with that stuff hanging from it. I think I prefer the colour version!

Identical, but so different. A very impressive looking tree!

Sharon said...

I'm all for the color version! Such a pretty tree!

Wow! Lovely!

I heard the golf tournament was packed with people but I hadn't heard a total yet. It was actually cooler this last weekend than it has been. We are now down in the 60's again when It had been in the high 70's. It's not supposed to get above 62 today. With our dry air, that's just a tad chilly to me.

Wonderful The black and white has a different charm.

Judy said...

Both beautiful but I'm drawn to the black and white one. It would make a nice framed art piece.

the B&W is pleasant
But I choice the color version because we don't have many color this the weather

Judy said...

I almost forgot to answer your question...yes, it was warm enough to eat on the patio that day. Clarkdale is at a much lower elevation than Prescott so it is always about ten degrees warmer there.

I prefer the colour probably because we have so little colour outside at this time of year.

Halcyon said...

I like the black and white one. Although both are really nice!

Bibi said...

I like the bw best!

I'm so accustomed to California oak trees that are drought tolerant. It's almost confusing to see them in a lawn, with moss. I think I prefer the color version; they look like they're standing in snow in the b&w and I'm chilly enough without thoughts of the white stuff!

Birdman said...

Are these the 'royal oaks' or are there others? Do you LIVE on this course?

Lois said...

I had a couple of those big oaks in my yard up until last summer when I had them taken down. Quite an ordeal, but my grandkids enjoyed the show. It was a little scary when they had to use a crane to lift several huge branches over the roof of my house!

Loos like snow in the B&W one. Nice shots. MB

Amazed that the spanish moss shows up so much better in the monochrome version. Both lovely tho.

Jack said...

I favor color 98 percent of the time, and this is no exception.

Normally I usually fancy the color photos but on this occasion I really like how these beautiful oak trees look in black and white. The golf course near our home is flooded at the moment so I will enjoy looking at your course all the more.
