I find it fascinating to see how plants can twist themselves into the most amazing shapes simply by following the light, year after year. Sometimes the effect is fairly modest, such as this tree that clearly had to grow at an angle to find an open space where it could “reach for the sky”.
Sometimes the situation calls for more extreme measures.
And sometimes you need to reverse course, ending up back where you started.
Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, the search leads back to the earth, where it all began. (Metaphors for life, anyone?)
But just when you think you’ve seen it all, you come across this.
No doubt there is a fascinating story behind the shape of this tree, but I really cannot imagine what it might be.
Hope you enjoy the images.
Thanks. There are so many amazing pictures in the forest. Glad you enjoy them.
it is an amazing forest indeed
I sure did enjoy those pictures. It’s fascinating what nature can do.
Glad you enjoyed them – and I completely agree it is fascinating. I still can’t get my head around the last one. What on earth was going on there…
I enjoyed your photos, it made me remember what it feels like to be in the forest. Thank you!
Adaptation! Nature is so good at that. Think of how many years all that took……
