Stripped back ribbons ready to be food of the future. generations. Wonderful old tree making an art work with it's veiled sox!!! We love it. D&M xxxx
I frequently photograph tree bark 'cause it's so amazingly beautiful. I wonder why others don't see the beauty in it. It also, as you note, stands as a metaphor for time and aging.
I love how it is both messy and beautiful. I agree with Ally, that bark is really beautiful. I love it too!
...so, its bark is better than its bite :-). Certainly photogenic anyway!
