Balanced ~or~ Deeply Rooted

Rooted

~sooc~




I took this today down by the waterway, the bank was lined with trees that had fallen due to erosion. This one amazed me, and I tried so hard to get a shot that portrayed both the depth of the roots, and height of the tree.









Before I left, while taking pics of a pelican, I saw this across the water on the other side of the bank...just not in time :( The tree fell right before my eyes......

Interesting photo the way you took it. The rest are right the angle is nice. I didnt expect it to be laying on the ground like it was in the bottom picture.
