Missed yesterday as I had an early appointment to get my right eye examined. Had drops added to both eyes to dilate them and then right one was also numbed so I wasn’t seeing too well for most of the day.
Back to trees and their bark for today’s photograph. Still in Riverton and Mores Reserve, but this time on the Coastal Lookout walk. It was a brighter day so less motion blur on the photographs.
This type of tree had seriously flaking bark (I wonder if that is some sort of evolutionary advantage). Lovely texture.
I’ve boosted saturation and vibrancy quite a bit. It looks all right in Lightroom and the browser but less good in Windows Explorer.
Since I have (and probably will continue to) posted photographs of trees and their bark, I thought I would direct those interested to a posting on Brain Pickings that was tweeted a few days back. The posting was in Nov last year and is about a book called, simply, Bark: An Intimate Look at the World’s Trees by French photographer Cedric Pollet. There are samples of the photographs on the Brain Pickings page and they are truly gorgeous. Go look, go buy!
Today’s pic is from Sherwood Forest where I went with my daughter a few weeks back for a walk and photography session. I love the natural textures and patterns in trees, rocks and nature in general. This shot is a close up of a tree trunk with its moss covered bark. I did little to this apart from increasing contrast a little and warming the bark colours to tone in with the green of the moss better.
