The best exposed root shot I have seen in a long time. I always wonder how the tree stays up!

Hi Kenny

When I took this I thought I would study it from the photo. Yes its amazing how these trees hang on in there!

It seems as if a landslip has uncovered the roots and they have adapted to become part of the trunk.

It is pretty sheltered here and so I think it will outlive most of us!

All the best Peter

This is also a great shot, Peter! The roots of this tree are amazing. They probably reach deep into the ground. Like! Greetings, Anne
