Interior given over to water storage, so no rings to count for ageing. Radio carbon dating says these are between 800 & 1000 years old x

you are an amazing man. I've always enjoyed your performances, but all this *save the wildlife* stuff takes my respect to an entirely new level!

These trees are amazing. Nice composition... the people give a sense of perspective. Such a lovely blue sky, too!

j9rodgers 2203 days ago

Amazing trees, they seem unnatural, almost like the cell phone towers disguised as trees. More amazing it is off an iPhone.

Good Lord! Marvellous.

I too am impressed these were taken with the iPhone's camera, I'd always considered it to be one of the few areas where the iPhone was wasn't as gorgeous as it might be. I'm sure you're right that light is the key factor.

They are amazing. I want some dotted around the Manchester Moors. That would make me a happy bunny.

Thank you for sharing your journey with us. It sparks a part of me that has lain dormant for far too long... It reminds me of the joy of discovery and that it is still possible to feel .

I mean that just can't be real! It looks so alien. My mind is opening all the time. xx

Wow, those really are quite peculiar looking trees. Great pictures!

They laugh in the face of dendrochronology.

Wow, makes me wonder how big the diameter is, it looks to be several meters at least. Simply fascinating!

What a spectacular tree! A true wonder of nature.

mariapage 2204 days ago

Amazing pic! Looks like a surreal painting! Thanks for sharing it :)

I had no idea that dendochronolgy wouldn't work on all types of trees. Shall have to take this up with my archaeology prof to find out more!
