  1. Interesting how the Cedar tree spread and flattened out over the barded wire.

  4. Nice shot. Bad memories. I tried to cut up on of those trunks (it was downed) once with my chainsaw, not noticing the dimple. Wrecked the chain thats for sure....

    Troutbirder, it's lucky it only wrecked your chain. Yikes!

  7. I'm thinking... in 100 years, will the tree outgrow the fence or will the wire cut the tree in half. Ah... the mystery.

  11. Must be very tight barbed wire fence! Goes to show you that you need to be flexible and grow around the obstacles in your life.
    I'm off to volunteer at Multnomah Falls in the Visitors Center - meeting people from all over the world. :-)

  13. Cool shot!
    I love that trees just grow into and evetually around things in their way, sort of quietly obstinate.

  21. Joe - I thought it was interesting how the tree ended up with this shape. Usually I just see the wire embedded in the tree.

    ReplyDelete
  22. JoLynne - That is a good question. Right now it kind of looks like the fence is taking over a bit.

  23. Very unusual, the way it made the tree grow flat.

    Your Blackberry Sorbet sure sounds refreshing in this summer heat.

  24. Battle of the barbed wire and tree. Looks like the tree is a bit more determined....

  25. I think the tree is screaming "don't fence me in!" Very cool capture. I love the shadowing in the background.

  26. I have to feel sorry for that tree !
