Default Hidden for Decades

Our local lake, created by a dam, is at historic lows revealing the stumps of tree cut down when the dam was built. From the desolate to the bizarre.

That first picture looks like a scene from an old monster film. The stump on the left looks as if it is "walkjng". You can bet though, that when they are covered by water, the little fishies hide among those roots from the big fishies.

Thanks for posting these, they are interesting, to say the least.

Very, very cool! I've taken some pictures of interesting roots like this but have never managed to have them look as interesting as they do in person. The b&w is obviously the way to go - it's really brought out the intricate paths of the various roots, and how interesting they are. That's always been lost when I've kept them in color. Thanks very much for posting these, I always love this type of thing!

I took my grandson to see them and he said, "monsters."

Have to agree with Mtngal on the B&W processing, works well.

That third one looks like an Elephants to me.

Interesting pictures and story. Have you found any abandoned buildings....vehicles, etc...that were flooded out after the dam was built ?

There was a dairy farm when the lake was created. According to rumor, there are buildings somewhere at the bottom. I'll keep a watch.

Indeed desolate and bizarre, but lovingly captured images. Great job in composing these photos, and great job with the B&W treatment as well.
