Beautiful shot. What a strange tree. It looks like some kind of burl or tumor on the trunk. Very interesting photo.
Strange tree indeed. As you'll see from the other photo of it, one of the major branches has a 90 degree bend on it. I guess the tree has had some sort of accident at an early age, but managed to pull through.
I found out after taking the shots that this tree was a much favoured climbing tree almost 60 years ago (when it was standing in a field, not surrounded by forest yet), and so probably had the funny shape even then. I'll have to take my mother to see the actual tree, not just the photos, to verify this, however.
Godt observert og fint presentert, mye rart i naturen og oppleve om en har øynene med seg.
Amazing, and a little bit spooky, it has some kind of bones there. Do you have any legend about trees and spirits there in Norway?
I'm sure we do, but I'm not much of a folklore expert, so I can't go into details.
Very beautiful picture, excellent shot.
