the tree branches in Mobile are extraordinary

the pictures are crap, but i was in the car & I wanted to show, anyone who cared to see, the trees in Mobile. The stretch across the streets forever. Absolutely defying gravity in my opinion.

    Oh what fabulous trees! I think what surprises me is how well they have grown right by the roadside – not all tree species cope well with the traffic pollution. Lovely images 🙂

      Thank you, Peggy. I thought they were extraordinary, the branches seemed to disregard gravity completely & continue thickening & stretching so far across the streets. This is Mobile, Alabama, where there are hurricanes, the trees age is apparent in their trunk’s thickness…i suppose if they can survive the onslaught of 150 mile an hour winds, then what is a little pollution to such a beast of tree. 🙂 ~amy

        Oh wow! The trees don’t look like they have survived hurricanes … there are no torn limbs etc. Amazing! HA! perhaps the hurricane season blows away the pollution! 🙂

      Those trees defied logic. I hope next time i go to Mobile, i am able to have my husband pull over so that i can capture their stunning strength & beauty better. Thank you, Julie! ~amy

    Those are great pictures! I have been tempted to go out in the middle of Government and snap some pictures, but as I’m sure you noticed, it could be death defying due to our lovley drivers. 🙂

    You can see the same thing in parts of New Orleans–makes for a nice cool drive. 😉

  9. Amazing that they are even allowed to grow in that manner when in so many towns and cities you see them hacked back to nothing. It’s a beautiful street for sure.

      You know, you are correct. it is as if the trees know that if they interfered with the traffic, they would be cut. I will get a better shot of these extraordinary trees next trip to Mobile. My daughter is attending University there. Lucky me! ~amy

      Thank you, John. I’m embarrassed that i took photos through the windshield instead of just asking my husband to pull over. I will do better, they are worth the effort. ~amy

      Rob, i took those photos of the trees through the windshield, which is pathetic, when i just needed to ask my husband to pull over. I will do so next time. Thank you so much for like them. ~amy
