Red Tree Bark

The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, then a living trunk,
and then dead timber. The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

That's a wonderful photo. Tree trunks are full of history.

Very observant of you, Kerri. Hmmm, I wonder what kind of tree it is.

I almost posted red tree bark myself (red osier dogwood) but I didn't like my photo. Maybe I'll take a better one for next week. ;-)

Great catch! I have never seen red bark. . .

Forgot to say, I left a comment on your last 4 posts. Didn't realize it had been that long since my last visit!

Wonderful picture Kerri. But I 'll recall the Saint Exupéry's quotation, he knew what he was talking about by "a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky".

That bark is lovely. I have never seen that before. I will keep my eye out now!

Lovely photo, the bark curls look delicate and great color contrast between bark and trunk. I like the quote too. Happy Ruby Tuesday! :)

I was expecting a bird - If you can make a trunk look beautiful.

Luke Wiley said...

Wow! Awesome close up shot!

Maybe the tree is already one with the sky and we just can't see it. ?

Wonderful macro. I like the detail and color of the underside of the peeling bark.

Mary said...

Beautiful color!

What beautiful bark. Do you know what type of tree this is?
