bahadir,

nice picture. It reminds me of our trees here after hurricane Ivan...what caused them to lean?

Hi,Robert
Thanks God such destructive and deadly hurricanes like the ones you had to face out there does not happen here.(I am considering the well being of people, otherwise I like witnessing extremes!)
About the leaning trees, ever since they were saplings their direction of growth must have been determined by the dominant wind of the region blowing strongly from the same direction.
Btw, that's a cool fish! Maybe you post some fishing shots:-)

bahadir,

yes, be happy you do not have hurricanes. As I write this, we have a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico, aiming for Florida.

As for those trees, all I can say is that wind must be relentless!

The fish is a Largemouth bass, the one in my avatar wejghed about five pounds, which is considered a good size to catch. The best size for eating is about three pounds, or I guess in the rest of the world, about 1.5 kg (I'm metrically challenged!)

If I get to go fishing soon, I will definitely post some pictures.

Take Care,

Robert

Robert, thank you for the information.
Large mouth bass.. Must be an implacable predator!
OK, then! Good Luck with fishing and shooting :-)

Interesting shot Bahadir. It's very easy to see which way the prevailing winds hit this area. Similar to our west coast on Vancouver Island. The Pacific winds blast the coast almost constantly causing this effect on coastal trees......cheers.....Don

Very interesting: we've got plenty of trees around here that are similarly "bent", although not as far as these! :-)

John.

Don & John, Thank you for your kind interest.
It seems we have similar experiences a continent's distance away :-)
