Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York.
Caucasian Wingnut, otherwise known as the “Trump Tree.”
A tree on a lake shore in Sweden looks like a stalk of broccoli. A photographer decides to photograph it over a number of years. It becomes popular on social media. Someone else makes a video about the entire broccoli tree thing. This is that video. Amazing.
Flickr member Howard White posted this rather creepy but fantastic image of trees growing in a forest in the Netherlands. Taken with his Fuji X-T2.
Bruno D’Amicis and Umberto Esposito kept a surveillance camera running for a year, aimed at a single tree in the Apennines (a mountain range in central Italy).
Numerous animals pass by the tree including boars, wolves, foxes, badgers, deer, and a bear (among others) who decides to scratch his back on the tree. This video is edited so that seasons fly by and animals come and go in succession.
Fascinating and brilliant.
My flickr contact Takuya posted this otherworldly reflection.
Flickr member Rich posted two images of a tree growing in Hong Kong where the roots have followed the seams between cobblestones, no doubt because of access to water. Amazing.
Steep Rock Preserve, Washington, Connecticut.
We took a short walk along the Shepaug River, attempting to avoid ice and finally gave up and called it quits. Without spikes on hiking boots it’s nearly impossible to walk on the trails around here right now.
There’s a large cedar tree in the parking area and its bark is amazing so I took a few shots near the ground. This tree is at least 100 years old, maybe older.
My flickr contact Chris Johnston posted this wonderfully detailed image of shedding and curling tree bark.
This is a fantastic process video on gathering bark, turning it into thin strips, spinning those into “thread” and then building a loom and weaving the thread into mats.
