Split trunk

By helenlinda
We went up to the Lickey Hills this morning. Lovely to hear our feet crunching in the frozen snow. Wonderful sunshine which was just like medicine SmileSmileSmileSmile
This tree trunk had obviously split and the sun shone on the layers of different colours within.
Many thanks to all who left clicks and comments on yesterday's
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Interesting Helen, we were out walking today and saw a large hole in the bottom of a tree and had to look to see if there were any animals sheltering from the cold. It looked big enough for a Fox to go in.

I usually prefer closeups, Helen, but in this case I prefer V2 for the extra context and lovely shadows.

I missed some of your recent work Helen; some really gorgeous images! Your skill and inventiveness with layers keeps amazing me. And I love the shadowplay too.
