The Gallery: Trees This Weeks Photo Challenge

The Gallery Trees Is This Weeks Photo Challenge. Hello. So I am finding my way around the world wide web and all things blog-related.

How lovely is it to find all these blogs in blog land!?

I also love discovering new blogs and reading blogs from all around the world.

It is my first ever week of joining in with The Gallery photo blog hop and just hopes I do this right 🙂 Ha!!

The Gallery Trees This Weeks Photo Challenge:

This week’s theme is Tree:

So my tree photo is of The Table Top Tree. A tree in between Nottingham and Worksop. It is on the A60 road from Nottingham and near to the town of  Mansfield. Have you heard of this tree before?

I really would like a seasonal picture of this tree. 4 seasons would be great!! Imagine how cool it would be!!

This tree itself reminds me of the time I ran The Mansfield Half Marathon. I did this race on the 27th of June 2010.

Everything thing was going great until I turned this corner at around 7 miles mark. This was my 2nd half marathon and thought I knew everything that I needed to know about running at the start of this race.

Turns out I did not!!

Having said that I had never trained in hot weather before.

The day I ran it, it was the hottest day of the year so far. I was dehydrated, got a migraine, and had tunnel vision. All starting at this point of the race for the next 6ish miles. It was a nightmare.


I did complete…..

A kind old man even borrowed me his cap to finish the race. Next time I will know to hydrate properly, wear sunglasses and a cap in hot weather and, not to set off too fast!!

Hay hoo it is not the tree’s fault, is it!? Anyway, such a cool tree.

Don’t you think so?

Do any trees bring back memories for you?

Thanks for stopping by here today and I hope to see you soon.

The Photo Shoot In Manchester With Marisota: Firstly, these photos from the past bring back so many fond memories.

Such a great day. I was up really early and travelled to Manchester on my own. Travelling on my own to a big city is something I have never done before as I did not think I was brave enough.

It just goes to show you that you can do anything if you want to. Would I do it again!? Yes!!! The Photo Shoot In Manchester With Marisota.

Shadow Shot Sunday: How Cool Is This Bench!? Secondly, how cool is this bench in Sherwood Forest? I adore this photo that I took deep in the woods. Something sets my mind off into a fairy tale of stories when I see this picture.

It was so peaceful around here. Underneath the trees and sitting amongst the shadows and the fallen Autumn leaves. Deep in the middle of the forest. Shadow Shot Sunday: How Cool Is This Bench!?

    what a fantastic tree, I guess it's very old.I like scenes like this when the road has fitted around the tree

    Great first entry to The Gallery. Welcome :)That tree is great, so unusual. I'll have to ask my hubby if he knows this tree as he is from Nottingham.
