Chaos!


I'm sure anyone who has travelled through Algonquin Park, has stopped for a so called" Kodak Moment" at this very spot on Smoke Lake, it's right before you turn to go on Arrowhon Road and the ministry float plane hanger....Well my last visit over a week ago was a sad one, a huge white pine at that very point has fallen to it's death....one of my header shots above shows the way it use to look ( the 3rd. header down) there is still a single pine but it just doesn't have the fullness now.....I love the chaotic tangle of these roots and I believe the B&W version is the best format to appreciate them......

Yes well done on the black and white, it goes very well!

Great B & W!! You certainly captured the severity of those roots....There is sort of a loneliness fallen upon them. I love it Susan! Also, the panoramic effect works very well here.

Sad to hear about the tree. When I saw this photo in thumbnail I thought it was a picture of snakes. Thank goodness it's not! (Not that there's anything wrong with snakes, but you know, they're icky first thing in the morning when you're having coffee.) Nice pix!
