That huge root system is amazing.

Like woods in a fairy tale that trip you up whichever way you go. We have them here as well.

A lot of roots! Great picture.

Ficus, right? There are lots of these in south Florida that looks just like this! Beauty of a shot and the b&w is superb!

Love the texture in this photo! But I bet it's hard to walk under that tree without tripping. ;)

Sami said...

We get a lot of those Ficus in Australia too, they are amazing!
Beautiful picture.

This tree would feel at home in Florida.

Wow! The lines of that tree and the roots are just amazing to behold. Beautiful shot!

I'm struck by the similar feel of this photo and Steffee's on Thursday, both B&W, although one is semi-tropical and the other frigid.

The root systems of figs do make a marvellous photo. A type of story tale quality.
