[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Kiwis that know Devonport will recognise this tree, it has a great mass of aerial roots coming down from some of the branches.

I always love paying a visit and spending time marvelling at what nature has done to this beast of a tree.

Thanks for looking.

Greetings,fine rendition of this interesting trunk.Excellent colors and detail create an almost abstract image.Best regards Otto.

It really does look like The Blob or some creature from an early series of Doctor Who. Nice job on the exposure (any tone mapping?) of this - the sky still appears blue even through we're viewing a shaded subject.

  • Great

It's the Moreton Bay Fig tree - they grow into such magnificent specimens.
Not easy to photograph - too big to capture if you are too close and you can't see all it's details if you stand far away.
The PP work has lightened it up and we can see it quite well here Ralph.
Well done
