TreeSquare: a glimpse through the trees

University of Glasgow

In my third foray into Becky’s TreeSquareย challenge I’m offering you buildings glimpsed through trees. Glasgow University’s tower can be seen from many vantage points throughout the city – above is the view from Thornwood, and below are a couple of shots from Kelvingrove Park.

Another landmark is Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, seen here from Glasgow University (with the tulips) and from the bridge on the Kelvin Way.

My final gallery includes Gartnavel Royal Hospital, Kelvinbridge Parish Church, and a rather lovely house in Blanefield, a village just outside Glasgow.

  1. Trees are wonderful, aren’t they? Was there something in the news about planting trees in the Highlands impacting biodiversity adversely? Sounded both counterintuitive and utterly believable! I’ll see if I can find a link.

  2. Great idea! These photos are all beautiful. The other day I was watching an international news program and one story was from Kelvingrove. I can’t remember what it was about now but I do remember feeling a bit smug because I knew where Kelvingrove was. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’ve often thought how much trees add to any landscape. Softening features, improving towns and cities; adding mystery to buildings and rooftops half glimpsed sticking out the green maze but not fully revealed; ever changing colours with the various seasons… and that’s without even mentioning any environmental or wildlife benefits.

I'd love to hear what you think!
