Gnarled Tree Trunk, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio


(Click image to enlarge)

This photograph shows a gnarled section of an upright living tree trunk I found on a walk in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It was one of the most unique tree trunks I had ever seen so I returned to photograph it on an overcast day, when all of the intricate textures would be clearly visible.
