Gnarly Cedar Trunk

Gnarly Cedar Trunk

From my sitting position, I get to shoot the bottoms of tree trunks. Fortuately, the base of Pacific Redcedars (Thuja plicata) are gnarly and full of character. Wikipedia says “The bark is fibrous and longitudinally fissured.” Well, yeah! You can just see a couple of dead twigs (leaves?) clinging to the bark.

I captured this one in my neighbor’s yard when out one day on a stroll-and-roll with my niece. I’ll be posting more pictures from that shoot later, including more cedar shots.
