one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Yesterday. No sun and later heavy rain over Les Sablettes. There's something about a tree on a beach that I just love. In summer, when this tree is in full leaf, it's used by families to shade babies in pushchairs.
Beach and Sea
c'est surprenant de voir un arbre sur une plage (enfin quand c'est pas un palmier). il est très beau
I'd love to see a summer image but this is so striking as it is now,like fingers reaching out.
It's so rare to watch it all alone.In summer, there's so much crowd, we don't even notice it.Today, Jilly, you offer it a moment of glory : )Watching it, I wonder how it could grow so close to the sea, it must like salty water ?
I always scramble to get under a tree if I go to the beach. Don't like to sit in the sun. I bet you're going to show us this tree again in mid-summer when it's shading babies.
I agree with Bibi. Nice in the summer sun for old people, sensitive skin and babies.
I love beaches out of season and the lonely tree is the heart of this image.Lovely shot, beautiful place.
You would know this. I don't know of any major beach in Oz that has a tree on the sand like this. Creek beds, yes. But a beach.This is gorgeous to my eye ...
ooo ... have just noticed the 108 ... you go, girl!!
We could use one of these trees on the beaches of South Alabama. The shade would be wonderful in July and August.
Jilly this is a wonderful post. Great title. And the tree, so warm and inclusive on this moody day. It does look so much like a place to seek shelter and comfort. But now I'm curious about 'the 108'...
What a beautiful shape! I just love seeing trees on beaches!
I really like trees on the beach. I am very grateful that in Costa Rica, there are always trees on the beach. When I go to Pacific Beach in California, there are no trees on the beach and it is sad.
Great, I'm always looking for shaded place on a beach:)
Lovely tree and unusual to see a tree on a beach. I wonder if it's a casuarina.
Just a beautiful photo Jilly! I'm with Julie. I've never seen a tree on a beach like this. V
it's a lovely setting... i'd like to be there right now!
I like this blue-grey atmosphere. This tree has beautiful lines, is it a pine? Or a tamaris maybe?
Unfortunately, I don't know the name of this tree but it is amazing it grows out of sand. I will endeavour to find out but it won't be immediate.
Because the salted water that it must, per force, pump into its roots, you'd expect little fish to grow on the branches...
I'd love to know the name of this tree,too. I am not used to seeing trees on beaches so this is quite fascinating.
