I love all the textures in this old tree. The tree is hollow and twisted. The rain and snow gets inside the tree and then on the coldest, windy days of winter, you can hear the tree cracking and creaking. This tree could easily fall and destroy a lot of property, but it always remains tall and strong. I think it exudes resilience and power. This next picture is really a snapshot. It is not very well focused, but it best shows the precariousness of the the tire as it sits on its own ice pedestal. The power of a few inches of ice holding up a half ton truck.
