Weird Beeches by Hluthvik Weird Beeches by Hluthvik
Three photos made in a weird forest. On a top of a little hill these and more beeches grow and look... well, crazy.

I'd want to live there... especially if there isn't many people around... for miles... :)

Love it. They look like three gnarled, surly old men. Do these beeches produce nuts? My family bought a piece of land in Nova Scotia that has some beech trees near it and I'm wondering if they will be useful as a food source.

Hrm, this was intended as a comment on 'Weird Beeches'. Since I'm here, I love your gallery very much. I'm never as happy as when I'm wandering through a forest, and clearly you feel similarly.

Uhm, it is a comment on "weird beeches" :D At least I can see it below the picture^^
Yes, this beeches produces nuts, in the late middle age this hill was used as a grazing land for pigs, the savages cut the trees at a certain height so they grew more branches than usual, thats why these beeches look unusual weird :D

To your second comment: Well, it's definitly a different happiness, a more fulfilling, I'd say. Great to hear of ... companions! :D

Hmm, weird.

Have you tasted any of the nuts? They are supposed to make an amazing oil...

And indeed, it's always a pleasure to meet people who understand the attraction of a forest.

Nope, only tasted one nut, can't say anything about it. I heard about the oil and wanted to test that somewhen

Yeah, the first nations would collect the oil, I think by mashing the nuts and then simmering them in water. The oil would collect on top and could be skimmed off. It's supposed to be absolutely delicious.
