Rooted and Grounded

This weekend we took the camera and went to a park that is nearby. There are lots of geese and ducks that live there. There are also these lanky old trees that are the coolest things. Their trunks run along the ground really low so you can sit on them. They're curvy and cool and would make a great photo location. I took a photo of my hubby sitting there, but he'd die if I posted it. Sorry.

The cool old trees also have cool old roots. They come out of the ground and follow it, sloping down into the pond. I wish I could have captured it on camera better, but I don't have a good wide angle lens... yet.

I love that shot...and if you look at the larger picture, you can see new growth peeking up from below the roots.

Nice depth of field too.

Looks like you are having tons of fun with the lens. Good think you didn't post the picture so your hubby will still be around...

I think you got a great shot! Something about that picture is very captivating. I'm not sure why, but I like it.

ooooh...you should pull out all of the color except the green...I wonder how that'd look.

Or do that other filter on it...dragonizer or whatever...it'd look like a root that has survived the odds...
