  4. Fascinating shapes on those old roots. Did they start underground and then get exposed?

  8. Lynne. I kept looking out for 'Treebeard' but he didn't appear!

    Wilma. They certainly create some interesting shapes.

    Mick. The tree is on the side of a deep depression on sandy soil so yes definitely a lot of natural some errossion.

    Keith, Jan, Mona & Sunny. Definitely a case of "walkies" & still going on underground.

    Proff AB Yaffle. To Middle Earth maybe?

  12. Kelly. I thought it was time for a 'header' change & celebrate the mass invassion of Painted Lady's.
    Careful with your immagination it might run away with you!

    Nature As Is. Cheers. Hobbits? ...maybe in your dreams!

    Tina. Disney could only copy, this is raw nature revealed by the elements but I'm sure I would post a different caption if it was at night!!

    Leedra. Thank you. Loved your Lilies - Are you sure you haven't been spying on a part of my garden?

  16. Awesome roots, you either gotta love 'em or dislike 'em. I often find myself stumbling over them when I'm looking up to take pictures of something. Heh... but when they are out as much as you have shown here, they have almost a creepy feeling as if they will pull out of the ground and wrap themselves around you... Ok, I obviously watched one too many scary movies! =)
