When a tree has low hanging branches, climb it

Granny has been down from Scotland visiting us for the past few days. On Friday we took her out as it was a glorious day.

Helen and Izzy climbing trees while on a family day out with granny.

While we were exploring the Surrey countryside, my girls, Helen and Izzy, found a tree with low hanging branches. As children of their age should, they decided to climb up it.

While they took a break from climbing, I took the opportunity to take this picture. I love both the focus of the image and the fact Helen and Izzy look so happy in each other’s company. For me, that’s what makes the image.

As is my habit every Sunday, I have linked this blog post to the #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the brilliant Photalife blog. Please do click on the link below to check out some marvelous photography from other bloggers.

      Yes, had good fun with granny. That particular day, however, had awesome weather. Ideal for such photos and climbing trees.

      Ah yes, the light coming in through the leaves adds to the picture. I had a few other images with light straming through the trees but the expressions on the girl’s faces weren’t quite so flattering.

    Lovely photo. My son likes to climb absolutely everything but weirdly, we’ve not done trees yet. I think we need to find one!

    Every child should have the chance to climb a tree. It is part of childhood. Lovely photo of your pretty girls.

      Tell me about it Darren. They’re growing up at terrifying speed. And look at your eldest, going off for the night on her own with Brownies.

    We love climbing trees too. Anything with low branches is fair game! #MySundayPhoto

      Quite right too! To be honest, I still enjoy climbing trees as an adult.

    Gorgeous photo of your girls, and hope you had lots of lovely family time with your granny x

    I love this, and there is nothing better than a climbing tree and even now I still get tempted to climb it, do you ever grow out of that? x
