PhotoHunt - Twisted

This week's photohunt theme is twisted.

This twisted tree lives near my house. It creates a mess of the front yards, with all the dropped twisted twigs. But they are so interesting to look at and I'm a huge lover of twisted lines like this. Each branch is uniquely twisted. Since the leaves fell off, its lovely silhouette has amazed me everytime I passed by. The twisted treetops are just about to grow into a full circle of greenery again, so today I captured a picture before the green leaves start to appear.


This tree trunk is one of those in which it grows in a very intriguing twisted manner along the path walk in the nature park. The twisted lines will grow to the ground and then root there creating twisted roots to this huge tree.



This is another old and twisted looking tree trunk which has been growing for years near my home. I thought this was a very odd, yet interesting looking twisted trunk with twisting and curving branches. They seem to twist and curl as they mature.

  18. Your photos confirm it for me -- i.e., that there may well be more twisted trees in Malaysia than Hong Kong! ;b

  49. Hi

    Dropping by to ask for your prayers and support for the Flood Victims of Typhoon Ondoy that just hit the Philippines, Metro Manila. I was very fortunate that my apartment has been spared from the major flooding but many have died and many more need to be rescued. Drop by over at empty streets to find out how you can also support those that have been hit by this tragedy.

    sincerely,
