...if the winds and clouds be right,
then the sun shines through a tiny hole 'twixt the branches of the hornbeam trees,
and lights this patch of locust bark with colors just like these:



Well, sort of.

Actually the colors back on the summer solstice were a lot better, but I didn't have a camera handy and watching the bark was a lot like watching a sunset -- different every few seconds.

The sun angle was not so good tonight, but at least the camera was ready. I'll take what I can get!

Hope you enjoy this little chunk of roughness. Very Happy

Contrasting colors are neat no matter what they are on Rik. Nice photograph, I think there might be a slime mold or two on there. I'll get my hand lens. Very Happy

How odd...and no stacking either.

I think I'm definitely out of my element here! Think

Thanks for the comments, guys! Very Happy
