When I went through my photos from last week I remembered I had taken a few photos of roots. Yes, I did say roots! They are so fascinating they way they can reach toward the water source. Unusual looking, some would say ugly, I find them stark, realistic and beautiful.

 Under the roots is a great place for small animals to find a home. They provide shade to the fish in the hot summer months too.

All along the creek bank there are the trees root systems exposed and clinging to the creek bank.

The roots help to keep the creek bank from eroding. See the stones and dirt all caught in the branches.

Look closely at this old cedar tree root system. It still clings to the rocks caught in them. 

There are many things in nature that we see but don't look at. Finding beauty can be as simple as pausing to really take a look!

  2. This takes me back over 30 years. My youngest boy wanted to catch a fish, he'd tried and tried with no luck. I set him down in a spot much like this (minus the snow and ice). A little while later he had his fish, much to his delight. His interest only lasted a few years, we are a family of hikers not fishermen.

  7. I completely agree...! I often take pictures of tree roots too...I find them a great art form from nature! These were great.
