Part of an old tree stump at Rainham Marshes, Essex, that's been buried in mud and has only relatively-recently been uncovered. The info board says it could be about 6000 years old but it looked in pretty good nick to me. Smile I had to take it from this angle as it was an odd shape and I didn't like the portrait format. V2 is just the base section.

Somebody's bound to come along and pick it up to throw on a bonfire!! Like what you've done with the angles, Chris.

There are similar stumps on the beach at Pett Level, just a bit west of Rye. I tried hard, never got a decent picture. Not easy.
I'm seeing some odd effects in both, particularly V1 - lightening of shadows combined with sharpening? Not sure

Very unusual. I like the way you composed this.

It must be a dense wood to have survived that long--- the image is well done and interesting!

Wow! Now could they decide this could be 6000 years old I wonder. Great shot......Sandy

Both beautiful compositions Chris.I have a slight preference for V2, maybe it's the light and tones.

Just think about the number of generations that have passed it by!

I'll bet they remember how Essex was before there were white stilettos!
