Thanks to each of you for your reflections on this photo. I think this is sandstone. At any rate, it is layered and fissured which allows the roots to take hold and water to percolate.

Greetings, Guy

The nature gives a chance to every creature. Amazing shot, Guy, the roots wrapping around the rock are really very particular. L

Greetings from Italy, Greta :)

Isn't nature amazing! Well observed and photographed, Guy.

Long ago I started a Panoramio forum category for pictures of tenacious trees like this, but I'm sure it's buried in the depths of Panoramio forums now.

Thanks, Marilyn. Yes, nature is amazing. I'll see if I can find that forum. It should have some interesting pictures.

Hello again, Guy. You made me curious, and I found that forum. I see that it wasn't just "trees" but "plants." I hope you enjoy it.


Geezer Vz on May 9, 2011

Thanks, Marilyn. I'll add this picture to it and also another one that fits, and have a look at the other pictures. Have a nice day.

This tree make us feel the endurance and vitality of it. Very good shot. like. Best regards from China, wayfarer

Thanks, Wayfarer. This tree makes me think of a line in a hymn we sing at church. "On Christ the solid rock I stand..."

I'm glad you visited my gallery and found a picture that has meaning to you.
