Bark details of Betual Utilis / Himalayan Birch originating from the East Himalayas.
Wandering around Wakehurst Place looking at and photographing tree bark on an uninspiring day for "Landscape vistas" is, I find, quite relaxing.
There are so many patterns, textures and colours when you take a close look.
Adjusting the White Balance in Lightroom 2.2 was a bit tricky to perfect but I think this is about as close as I can get to the original.
Is there still a small magenta colour cast on the greys ?
