The Beauty of Trees

These trees reside in North Carolina.  To me they look like something out of a Fantasy movie like Lord of the Rings.

I just had to take a few pictures of the ivy covered columns.

Although this one is not as close as I would have liked to take it, is a pretty cool tree the way it's trunk is bent.

I often wonder how or why the tree grew that way.  Was it a force of nature or man?

I'll probably never have a chance to view and photograph trees half as cool as these, but it is fun to look for them. 
Consider it window shopping in natures department store.

Sydney says those trees remind her of the beanstalk in Jack and the Beanstalk, she wonders if the giant lives at the top. Too funny.
