Elegant Curl

On our last walk in the Forest of our childhood, Clytie and I unexpectedly found the most amazing dangles of curling bark. Of all the photos I took of those beautiful and graceful curlings -- this one seems the most intriguing.

It almost looks like a shaving of rusty metal doesn't it? Beautifully sharp clear photo, sissie.

All the beauty and history of Life can be found in a tree. What Joy your photo brings with its twists and curls.... Just like life itself, Full of patters, twists and curls, yet upheld by a foundation of strength through Faith, Love and Compassion. Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P

I thought it was the edge of the top of a 55 gallon drum. Duh.
