Great shot, Patrick! What a creative idea. #125330

Thanks Gene and Evy! We have manzanita trees on our property, and this is one of them. The bark curls and peels like this in the summer. The hard part was finding a flat enough spot and using a small enough aperture to keep everything in reasonable focus. #125455

This is super, Patrick! I love all those curls! And the color is great, too.
