Mahogany Cherry 2

By pamelajean
Continuing my abstract series.
(I uploaded this as a version in 2009).

I think my love of trees developed when I lived in the New Forest, but I never found this one there. The Mahogany Cherry or Tibetan Cherry has magnificent glossy coppery-red bark with attractive peeling circles. It was introduced from China in 1908.
I love its shape, sheen, colour and texture, and the way the upper part looks like a toned lower human back.

Thanks to all who took the time to look, vote, award and comment on my Spanish Hot Springs.

Beautiful texture on the tree, you feel you would want to stroke it! Good tight framing used to emphasize this section of the tree.
