I love it when you see things in nature that remind you of other things! As I was walking through the Quiver Tree forest in Keetmanshoop, Namibia, this root looked a lot like a tiger or lion paw and forearm, draped over the rocks. I framed it to capture what I saw rather than simply record it for what it was; I was fascinated by the way the root had grown in and around the rocks. While I have several nice larger landscape images from the place, this one remains a favorite because it suggests something other than what is really is.
Thanks for visiting,
Yep, I see that, but it’s interesting how different people see different things. First thing I saw was crusting lava oozing through the rocks. You have at least a double-whammy of alternate realities.
Very interesting viewpoint, Ed. It could at first glance be considered lava, too, the way pahoehoe flows. just a lot lighter in color than lava. Thanks for commenting and I’m sorry I missed this – I was traveling en route to Morocco and beyond when it came in and it slipped through my fingers.
