High contrast b&w suits the subject perfectly Bill.

I've photographed those roots many times, but never achieved a final image as good as this.

A lesson in processing an excellent composition, Bill. Very eye catching.

Positively frightening. I too have seen these roots but they were never as menacing as portrayed here.

With a bit of imagination, it could be a somewhat scary place. Qui nightmarish!

I once asked a group of cub scouts if a stand of trees in the distance were deciduous or coniferous. As one, they said correctly, coniferous. When I asked why they were such, they replied that trees didn't eat meat.

A superbly detailed mono, Bill

Superb Bill, it's a great subject and the composition really makes the most if it.

I'm sure I came across this same tree when I was last there! Looks like it's reaching out to grab an unsuspecting passer-by... 😁👍
