Plants are not stationery, they are constantly growing, moving and twisting toward the light.

“When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly inter-twined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?”
–   Seneca  


This week, share a photo of something that says “twist” to you. It might be that perfect ice cream cone, a yummy bit of liquorice, or something unexpected that surprised, shocked, or startled you.

  2. The Spiral of Life.. comes to mind.. Beautiful photos Pauline.. _/\_ Sue


  3. what great variety you give us – and I like the man (Jack) looking up on the path – it gives more of a feel for the majestic size of everything – and what a picture to keep soaking up – all were – and that is why I liked the variety of twists – the Seneca quote was nice – and loved how you said this (because it reminds me of people in way as well

    “Plants are not stationery, they are constantly growing, moving and twisting toward the light….”

    have a great day – ~y.


    • Hi Yvette, pleased you enjoyed your visit to the twisted world of plants. I love how the challenges can be twisted 🙂 to suit what photos I have.


  4. I tried to take some vine-twist photos at the creek the other day and mine are nowhere near as spectacular as yours! Well done 😀


  5. Joan and Terry Watson

    i Cannot believe all those twists and turns, what you can do with your camera is amazingx


  6. Welcome to WA. I nearly put in the wind bended trees near Geraldton. We have twists in WA too:)


  7. There is never ending beauty in nature and you certainly captured some great ‘twisty’ shots. Loved the photo of the green palm fronds the best although they were all awesome. Thanks for sharing 🙂


  8. I love palm trees, don’t see them where we live. I didn’t know the fronds twist so. Great shots, that must be a wonderful place to visit. I like the Seneca quote, too.


    • G’day Patti, they are definitely tropical lovers and just say hot balmy weather. I love them too and have a lot of them in my garden back in Queensland

  10. Your frond shots are stunning!!


  11. Thank you for taking me back into rainforest. I used to spend a lot of time in rainforest, before rock-hopping, before boating … Before other things moved to the foreground. My favourite is the second one- that’s a real catch.


    • G’day pleased you dropped by before your big OE…I agree walking in rainforests is a very special experience.
      Good luck with your trip


  12. Wonderful photos and take on the ‘twist’ theme, the first one is positively alien-like (E.T. anyone?!!). 😉


  13. What beautiful examples of “twist”, Pomme! I feel as though the fronds are just waiting to spring open at any moment.



  14. These are absolutely wonderful! I was into that too, but changed my mind! Yours are more glorious than mine…!


  15. Love them all!


  16. Love the palm fronds too!
