Any interest instarting a tree bark/trunk thread...the texture, shapes, and colors are quite interesting and varied. Here's my ante: a river birch trunk. Harriet, any Redwoods in your neighborhood???

All of the trees in my yard are uninspiring pinon pine trees, not much for interesting bark. The pictures I took in April of some Sequoias aren't that good - if I can't talk my other half into a road trip next Sunday, I'll be among them again in early September.

However, I've got a couple of bark pictures that are kind of interesting. I'm at the office again and using Microsoft Office Picture Manager again for resizing (they were sized to fit my monitor with CS2 when I was home).

This first one is of a tree that is located about 8,000 feet elevation and is some type of pine. I have no idea what is going on to have caused it to have this feature, but I thought it was interesting.

This second one was an experiment, right after I got the DS. Its a tree located in the Botanical Gardens I visit occasionally and I was using a 50mm 1.7 lens with a close up filter. The close up filter does a nice job with the 50mm, but I prefer the Phoenix lens. I have no idea what kind of tree it is, but the thorns on it were pretty fierce looking.

There's another tree with facinating bark, but I haven't managed to get a decent photo of it yet. Maybe this week I'll manage a lunchtime jaunt over there again.
