    Wow. Old, grand, and super stylish.

  2. Anne says:

    There are a lot of tales to be told in these weathered remains!

  3. I feel a definite affinity with this old tree…

  4. Alice says:

    A tribute to the Pine’s steadfastness……I like the little window!

  6. Speaking from experience, this has not been a good winter for old pines. 🙂

    I like the ‘spigot’ on the right: apparently where a former branch joined the trunk. Perhaps that’s where a bucketful of spring could be gotten!

  8. Treah Pichette says:

    I can relate! 😉

  9. Very artistic composition!

  10. Oh, my! What beautiful knots and weathering. We should all age so well.

  11. Dale says:

    That is beautiful! Trees are such great subjects to photograph 🙂

  12. Tina says:

    Nice capture! Love the texture and holes–there’s still plenty of life in that, isn’t there?

  13. Eileen Clark says:

    I love trees, dead ones, early spring, fall ones, and weeping willow’s are my most loved

  14. John says:

    Wow, that is so cool looking! Nature is a fantastic artist, isn’t it? ❤️

  15. Debbie says:

    What an interesting tree — I’ll bet it could tell so many tales if it could talk!

  16. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Very old by the look of it

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, I would say so. Probably been in that spot at least a hundred years. I’ve been walking by it for decades, been dead longer than that and maybe 75-80 when it died. An old soul!

  17. What a beautiful perspective of this lovely old snag!

  18. Love it, a White Pine?

  19. Pepper says:

    Beautiful! Oh, the stories the tree could tell. 😊👏🏽

  20. Very nice image Eliza! Enjoyed seeing it!

  21. This is too reminiscent of the shattered junipers all around Austin after last week’s ice storm.

  22. Robin says:

    I love your perspective on this. It almost looks like some fantastical creature. Maybe that’s what trees turn into when they finish this life. 🙂

  23. Adele Brand says:

    Looks like a good friend to meet on a forest walk. There is something special about old trees, even the ones that have got holes in them. Landmarks for us, and great habitat for wildlife.

  24. A great old tree that has served its time! I like your angle and how it is reaching up along with the other trees.

  25. How these trees endure. Still beautiful.

  26. Slowly returning to the earth. Nice perspective, Eliza!
