What a great shot ... love the way the tree is wrapping itself around the rocks ... taking back what was once its own :) It really is an amazing sight ... thanks for sharing ;)

All the best from Sandy ;)

Larry, special thanks for giving me a big smile at your apt observation!

Thanks, Luca and Pat for the BO.

And thank you, Lourenco, Sababoy, Ed, Vittorio, Magdalena, Teresa, Keith, Bruce, Amparo, Sonja, Steen, Azzy, Jorge, José, Sandy, **Gabor, and Tiago, for all your nice comments. It was an amazing sight to see. I think we were told that some of the trees were about 200 years old, and they wre doing remarkable things as nature gradually reclaimed the site.

Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

Какие развитые, уникальные корневые системы, очень красиво. Похоже на Ангкор. (What developed a unique root system, very nice. Similar to Angkor.)

Wonderful image. Well done. I have tried several times to get a good image of tree roots piercing walls, but this is better than what I have achieved.

I quite appreciate your background in photography, since I got my firs SLR in 1964 (mostly with Kodachrome), but I began in digital earlier than you, in 1997 (although it was not very good at that time). Y fully converted when I got a Nikon D100 in 2002.

Best regards.

Power of nature...trees would replace us, human being, and all our good or bad achievements very fast...:-)
