Dora said...

Looks like a piece of art!

Eds said...

Tsk tsk.. i just hate how people destroy our mother nature.. unfortunately, this tree won't have many life lines like the others.

Happy WW!

What a very old beautiful tree. If it could talk, I'd want to hear its story. Thank you for stopping by my WW post.

Have a great Wednesday!!

Great shot. Even a stump shows the sheer beauty of nature. Happy WW

Randall said...

Just think... each ring represents one year of that tree's life. Was that a palm tree?

Robin said...

No, not a palm. Palms don't really have traditional trunks, more like odd broken off woody bits where the old fronds broke off/were trimmed. I'm not sure what this one is, I've only ever seen it as a piece of landscaping.

Lovely! There's something truly amazing about and old tree trunk!

sheila said...

Love it! Imagine all the things that ol tree has seen!

Going to explore your site, I'm fascinated that you are in Israel.

June said...

Lots of life this tree has seen...so interesting to imagine it all!

Mojo said...

What a perfect title. And a very poignant photo when considered in the context of that title too.

Red Lotus Mama said...

What an interesting photo. The title really describes it. Thanks for stopping by.

Cool composition. I like the blurred grass in the corner, just adding a little burst of color to the scene.

Besides being cut down it looks like it had some other stress too. Love the pattern of the rings...
Have a good week Robin...

Beautiful Shot. It looks like a footprint, too.

Ms. A said...

Beautiful! Looks so much like a fingerprint.
happy ww.

marina said...

that's great. i costa rica, there is a lot of furniture made with that kind of tree look and it's gorgeous.

Happy WW! Have you ever seen Hummingbird Babies?

Daisy said...

Yeah, I wish they'd leave the trees alone. :(

Great pic!

Jan Parrish said...

Very creative title. Great shot. Almost like a footprint, leaving it's mark behind.

Erika Jean said...

hmmm i think i see 24 rings! old tree!

Stan said...

There are a lot more than 24 rings. Really old bristlecone pines out here in the western US live thousands of years.

Amber said...

We had to cut a tree down in our front yard (it was so close it would touch the gutters with the tiniest bit of wind) and I refuse to get rid of the stump because it's just stunning, much like this one you've captured. This is a beautiful shot!

Carmi said...

I love the texture in this view. Beautifully captured!

I see hints of a shoe in the shape. If only this stump could talk about all its years on this planet.
