Here are a few tree studies for Vivian Blackburn's tree challenge.

These black oaks are ungainly, with little foliage and often a lot of stringy moss at the top. Not a particularly attractive tree, but I do like watching them sway back and forth wildly on stormy days.

There are a lot of these in Oregon...

I'm not sure what these trees are, but I love the greyish/blue color.
