BeautyScope 136: Ribbon bark

a veil of history
old wars visible 
see life through


  1. Stripped back ribbons ready to be food of the future. generations. Wonderful old tree making an art work with it's veiled sox!!! We love it. D&M xxxx

  2. I frequently photograph tree bark 'cause it's so amazingly beautiful. I wonder why others don't see the beauty in it. It also, as you note, stands as a metaphor for time and aging.

  3. I love how it is both messy and beautiful. I agree with Ally, that bark is really beautiful. I love it too!

  4., its bark is better than its bite :-). Certainly photogenic anyway!
