I love this...there is such extraordinary beauty in the way vines weave through place. You've really captured that here. The lianas in the jungle were at every inch a piece of handcrafted art -- and the light was way to insufficient to try to even capture an image. Glad you could do it here.

Are those honeysuckle vines? I have to admit I never thought of those vines as being beautiful but your photos show their structural strength.

I wonder the people who first made rope looked at vines like the first photo for inspiration.

I love this V! Very clever. Vines always remind me of my Grandma Kindel. She had grape vines in her front yard. Love your pictures!

It must be that you can see vines so well in winter, there seems to be a lot of vines on blogs now days-me included!

Your photos are stunning per usual! The sepia effect really intensifies the winter feel.
