Sad old tree trunk, but beautiful shadows of antiquity it produces...and yes...ol' man Winter, be gone with ye!!!
Oh, those massive, moss-covered roots! What a grand elder. May I sit at her feet?MANY SHADOW-SEEKERS SAYMany shadow-seekers say,“Oh, the one that got away!”Why are you so uptight, folks?Can’t you take light’s little jokes?© 2011 by Magical Mystical TeacherShadowy Tequila Maiden
I'm just home from London and was rather shocked to discover I'd taken so many many photos of trees!
I love photos of trees, this is super!
Beautiful old tree and what a beautiful capture and reflection! I love it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!Sylvia
The roots are usually unseen, so we don't consider the force they wield as they expand ever further. This is a visual proof of it, the power of their expansion to strong for the ground to contain. A rugged yet lovely view!
.....and the small boy in me also has trouble resisting examining shadowy holes in tree trunks a little to closely.
Wonderful photo, Juliet, with the deep shadow in the cleft of the roots. And I love the Scots names: "Water of Leith" is so poetic.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
I am weird but this looks like a huggable tree..I went to Redwoods once and felt such a compulsion to hug the trees!
cool tree trunk! I like the moss on it!
The moss is lovely on the tree roots and trunk.
"Rooted in shadows" indeed. Terrific.Here is my link:Misty MornHave a great weekend.
old old soul, there.looks almost as if its been wittled away by a large old knife... but living on nonetheless.
Been looking at trees myself today, their twisting trunks so elegant and full of character....
lovely shot - very grounded!!
I wonder if two saplings grew close together and twined around each other? This happens sometimes with New Forest beech trees. I shall take my camera and go out to look for some.
What a gorgeous tree! Look at all that moss (right? that looks like moss) at the bottom of the tree!
Beautiful capture!My Shadow Shots
What a great tree trunk! I'd like to lunch near it.
A lovely old tree, you've found an apt title too. Is it still living?
The picture poses so many questions! Why are the roots exposed? Was there some sort of land slide? Did this tree initially nurse from the long dead remnants there or were they all part of a once much larger tree? Is it part of just a small stand or a large grove?Hmmmmm ....
What a beautiful and interesting old tree stump. Lovely shot!! Mickie
Love trees, the narlier the wood the better!
Paula - yes its moss!Dartford Warbler - yes it could be two trees that grew very close and one died, there are pairs of trees like that in the same areaRabbits Guy - the roots are exposed due to erosion, the tree is on a steep bank, along with lots of others, several of which also have their roots exposed
Beautiful shadows, twisted roots and moss...the moss brings life back to this image of transformation.
I love photos of trees... I find that I take lots of pictures of trees and things behind them.. I especially like some of the trunk formations and your wonderful find is so pleasing and intriguing. I can imagine this hanging on a wall. Hugs, antonella :-)
love this - there's something powerful and majestic about trees, their ability to grow and age and survive for so many years.
That is beautiful. I love the vivid bright green moss around the base of the tree stump
Great shot,I love pics of trees and that is a really neat one
