    That is so beautiful. The design is incredible…the texture. I love it. Looks like it might itch, like a peeling sunburn. 🙂

    This is so beautiful. Fascinating, too. Another image full of layers and colors and patterns and textures. I love it. 🙂

  6. Goes to show one can age with grace 🙂 I relate I think.

  7. It’s a gray, gloomy, cold, damp day so I’m feeling introspective. I looked at this photo and thought about life and the layers we work through. 🙂

  8. Gorgeous. How big is this tree? Just curious about perspective.

  9. Maria F. says:

    Amazing, just how many layers beneath and the colors.

    Stunning picture, there are so many trees with interesting bark.

    magnificent! I love birch trees.

  12. I think I used to be a tree in another life! I love the energy of trees. This picture reminds me of peeling back the layers of my life to find smooth paths.

    Love this bark shot, Eliza! It has the effect of looking at clouds, or a fire. One sees oneself reflected back. As for me, I a being with a whole palette of options.

  14. Val Boyko says:

    Great textures and depth Eliza! I love my birch tree 💛

  15. This photo is just perfect! I’m in love with it! I have a strong urge to run my hands across the tree now! Lol I don’t think there are any of those near me though! What a blessing it is to have access to them whenever you want! It’s great that you appreciate the beauty around you and don’t take it for granted. I love the texture of this and can almost feel it just by looking at it. The colors are beautiful and I love how you got a close up photo and how we can still see a hint of green on the side. I can stare at this all day! It’s very inspiring! Like I said, just perfect! ❤

    What a beautiful detail to highlight. Birch is one of my favorite trees, as it happens. Whenever I see the bark close up, it always makes me think of one of my children’s Christmas presents, wrapped by my own expert hand.

    Beautiful colours and texture.

  18. Whoa! this is so powerful. I like how it leaps out at you,.

  19. I’m a bark person too, and this is magnificent! 🙂

    Beautiful photo of the bark!

  21. Kathy Sturr says:

    Oh LOVE! Spectacular texture. I have a little baby one in my garden – sure hope he grows up as handsome as this – or maybe these good looks are mostly due to the talented photographer.
