Sunset trees for @parul2411’s #ThursdayTreeLove

I really hoped to get out this week with my camera to take pictures of spring blooming trees, but the weather (and the trees…lol) decided to be uncooperative. However, just a couple of weeks ago during a blissfully warm April day, I managed to get a bunch of pictures of some sunset trees at the edge of our yard, and thought they’d make for a good contribution to today’s tree love festivities.

Before I get on with the pictures, many thanks as always, to my WordPress blogging friend Parul for hosting this awesome blog hop every couple of weeks. If you want to join in the Tree love blog hop fun, it’s really easy – here’s the description from her latest post today, called #ThursdayTreeLove – 108

Thursday Tree love is a photo feature hosted on this blog on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of a month. The next edition will go live on May 13, 2021. If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog, tell me where did you spot the tree and link it back to this post.

If you don’t see the pingback, please leave a link to your post in my comments section. Please make sure that your post’s link is showing up on this latest edition. I will link your posts on my blog in the next edition and spread some love. Let’s come together to appreciate the beautiful nature around us.

Also, these were taken in my Durham, NH yard with my Nikon which was affixed to my handy dandy tripod. All were resized, then cleaned up a bit with PicMonkey.

Now on with the photos!

Sunset trees from April 10th, 2021


Sunset trees
1. The weather this particular day was beautiful and Freddie (our cat) was anxious to head outside for a bit, so even though it was getting kind of late (around 7pm) I decided to take him out for a short stroll.

2. After I saw how amazing the trees looked, I asked hubby to run back in to grab my camera & tripod, and a few minutes later I got the previous shot. He also took over walking Freddie for a minute while I took 19 bazillion shots!

3. And of course, one of the Shagbark Hickory trees had to make an appearance!

4. This is a different one from the guy who usually shows up in my Tree Love posts – figured I’d change it up a bit. But first, I turned the camera a bit to the left…

5. …because I love the pattern of this tree’s branches!

6. Then a quick zoom in to show the buds are budding.

7. And now back to the Shagbark that looks especially beautiful lit by the setting sun.

8. While I’m only sharing a few, suffice to say I took many more similar shots….lol

9. I thought it would be fun to show each step of the way as I got closer and closer to the tree.

10. While I’m not very tall to begin with, looking up at the these trees like this make me feel even shorter.

11. And of course if I’m going to be this close, I need to get another closeup of the beautiful litchen.

12. The light was starting to fade at this point, but I had time for another shot…

Sunset trees
13. or two before taking the leash back from hubby & letting Freddie wander around to enjoy the early evening sights & smellls in our yard. Might share a few of those shots another day, but for now…


Happy Thursday Tree Love, everyone!

  1. Wow, I love the shots of this tree. It was such a different feel altogether. I did feel a bit small as I imagined staring at a tree so tall. Still, this tree would give me a good back stretch, I can guarantee that! I loved to see the buds, marvellous photography! Thanks for this and I love your wit! <3
