This old willow tree grows near a creek about 2 miles from my house. I don't know what has caused it to be so gnarly.

This is so cool. I recently took some pictures of a tree with deep texture. It almost looked like the bark was braided. Yeah, I get excited over tree bark...

recently took a photo of a granddaughter standing next to a gnarly old chestnut tree.

Your definitely looks like one of the tree people in the Lord of the Rings series

Wow, that's cool. Seems that we are surrounded by faces. I see lots of them in the mountains and cliffs out in the desert.

So many stories there. Great shot.

My parents had an old willow tree when I was little. Amazing shot !

Tht's great if you keep looking at it you can see an eye each side sort of like an elephants

This is the sort of picture I adore. All the ordinary things we pass by all the time, so full of character!

That tree is a character waiting for his story!

As an older person, I can relate to this tree. Young people may look at older folks and think they're "gnarly," but we have stories to tell for those willing to listen.

bermudaonion 8/4/10, 8:26 AM  

Wow! When I see a tree like that, I always wonder how old it is.

Beth Hoffman 8/4/10, 8:29 AM  

That is precisely the kind of tree that ignites my imagination. I love that old tree; thanks for the great pic!

We used to have lots of big old trees in my area, but they have all gone now. Good to see the amazing photo you have here.

Great blog.

S. Krishna 8/4/10, 9:15 AM  

Wow, that's very gnarly!

(Get it? Gnarly? As in cool? Like woah, that's gnarly!!)

Ok, I'm going to quit while I'm ahead.

Beth 8/4/10, 9:37 AM  

I'm waiting for the tree to start talking. What a great shot!

TBM 8/4/10, 11:59 AM  

I love big, old, gnarly trees! This one is wonderful :-)

Sandy Nawrot 8/4/10, 2:35 PM  

I'm wondering if this tree is known for the old man face in it, or you saw it yourself. You have an amazing eye.

Beth F 8/4/10, 2:41 PM  

Sandy: I've lived here many years and I don't remember anyone ever commenting on that tree before. That's not to say that others aren't familiar with it.

caite 8/4/10, 2:50 PM  

a nice capture. I have to agree with someone who commented before that I love photos of all the fantastic things around us everyday that we so often miss.

Chrisbookarama 8/4/10, 4:30 PM  

Very cool! Maybe there's a person trapped inside.

William K Wallace 8/4/10, 5:23 PM  

I love walking through the woods being surrounded by nature, especially the old trees that have been standing for decades if not longer...a wondrous sight!

auntie-c 8/4/10, 10:17 PM  

What a great shot that makes me want to sit down and ask "him" questions.

SandyCarlson 8/5/10, 12:21 AM  

Gorgeous to be sure.

daphne 8/5/10, 2:18 AM  

It looks creepy but I appreciate the goodness of it. I think it's cool to sit down under that tree with your love ones and enjoy some readings. Good tree, bad me coz I said creepy

Heather 8/5/10, 9:54 AM  

Oooo I love it! It looks like an old man with a rather large nose. Very cool.

Dorte H 8/5/10, 2:45 PM  

Oh, he is the personification of a quirky, cozy mystery character. I think he has Norwegian (troll) ancestors.

Alice 8/8/10, 8:19 PM  

That looks like a face from the side. Great shot, Beth!
