Eradicating Descent

Is the tree trying to run away? uprooting itself to flee? Or is it drought, the roots begging for water, searching for relief? Ithaca, NY

Nature and survival, beauty in everything around us. Root systems are amazing. Nice capture and comment!! Is the tree still alive?

Artist Reply: Hi Mary! Yes, the tree is still alive. To the right of this tree are huge waterfalls. Slate surrounds everything, including the water. I'm guessing that these roots were formed via repeated surges in the falls. Thanks!

I see animals... desperate, tentacled beasts, struggling for air (or water). Very powerful!

interesting and important subject-matter here... its horrifying in its dead barren content, but also beautiful in the shapes and twisted limbs of the tree... great shot! very very well done!

interesting conundrum - whatever you do, don't try eating the apples off this guy.
