What I love about this series of photos is that it shows the disintegration of life; how the stump reconnects to the earth. Look at the beautiful shape it forms. Magnificent!
What a great way to highlight nature's fragility. Yes, the tree was old and had served it's living "purpose," but it's so sad to see the old trees go. I do take comfort in the continued life it has in it's decomposition stage. A purpose for everything under Heaven....
Yes this is what taking pictures is all about. Seeing things in a different way. And isn't it wonderful. I'm glewed on my lens it seems.
Taking photographs makes you notice so much more - I think you become very connected with nature - and I have found that such a blessing.
