akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Beautiful textures and abstract picture. I am thinking about a trunk and some leaves at the bottom.

@akarui: Thank you, and you are right. :)

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

For me it's an interesting abstract image. I can't figure out what you photographed. Lichens on a tree trunk?

22 Jun 2008 11:56am

@António Pires: Thanks Antonio, and yes it's the kauri tree in my backyard. It was a little tricky to take, I stood on the seat on my deck (very close to the tree) and had my forehead leaning on the trunk as I shot downwards.

Kelela from Upland, United States

Wow; very cool. You've got me fooled. Is it from a tree, a rock, a plant? Nice find and nicely composed!

22 Jun 2008 4:50pm

@Kelela: Yes it's a tree trunk - looking down. Kind of tricky to take! Thanks Kelala.

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

The Kauri in your garden?

@MadScientist: Bingo! I didn't think it would be such a puzzling picture actually!

Marion from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

I agree with Anthony. Keep them coming ... great shot. The only thing that I would suggest is that you tell us what you have photographed. Is it lichen? Whatever, the photography is good.

23 Jun 2008 5:25pm

@Marion: It's a Kauri tree in my backyard, looking down the trunk. Thanks for the encouraging comment, Marion.
