What wonderful textures and colors!
It would looks very pretty in the garden of your home, Richard. :)
LOL I agree with polytropos Richard and agree totally with Marilyn. :)
Sorry Richard for posting your name wrong earlier. :S I was at work and wrote my reply to you too quickly (my brain/fingers didn't record what my eyes were seeing). :S
fantastic photo Richard,
thanks for sharing :)
Greetings Marilyn, Thanks for visiting my latest post. Hope you are well. There are many trees that are down over the decades and the roots weather and turn reddish brown like this. They really are beautiful. Thanks for your comments.
Greetings Polytropos, This would be beautiful in any garden, but I would not be able to enjoy it from my jail cell!
Greetings Lilypon, No worries. Thanks for visiting my latest post. Fruits of a great day.
Greetings Bruce, Thanks for visiting the old stump and roots. I have no idea what the tree source is for these roots. All the down trees with roots like these had a very shallow root system, but I guess that is typical for these types of trees. Sorry for no help there.
Greetings Rosina, Thanks for visiting the tree roots and commenting. A landscaper could have a field day if these were available. Thank goodness they are in the park and will be there for years to come and everyone can enjoy. The are very beautiful.
Beautiful photo Rich thanks for sharing, Greti.
Greetings Greti, Thanks for visiting and commenting the root photo. As the forest ages and the winds become more severe we have more blow down and some of the root systems that don't break up are 8 to 10 feet in diameter. After all the dirt and rocks and little roots fall off the remaining roots are pretty neat. There is one root up by Lake Hiyaha that is 8 feet in diameter and a whole family can stand in front of it for a picture. Glad you enjoyed.
Richard, this photo is great! It looks as if this root had an own personality. Probably the tree has endured many good and bad times. Thanks for it! My greetings, May
(Was the photo further back before in your gallery or am I mistaken? When yes, how did you change it to the first page?)
Greetings May, This was a new posting as of weekend before last. I did have a twisted trunk from a while back, maybe that was it. Thanks for visiting, glad you enjoyed.
Thank you Richard for answering so fast. It's always a pleasure to see your gallery! :-)
Best greetings, May
