An unusual point of view- Weekly Photo Challenge

Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

by Cheri Lucas Rowlands on September 6, 2013

Challenge yourself to rethink your ideas about what subjects are appropriate, and then challenge yourself again to find an unusual perspective on your subject.

I love photos of the magnificent trees in our South African Bushveld. So I decided, from an unusual point of view, to include the tree’s roots in the shot…

I think, but will stand totally corrected if I am wrong, that this is a Wild Fig tree, growing on the R101 between Nylstroom and Warmbaths (Modimolle and Bela Bela…)

As I said, I am no dendrologist so if somebody knows differently please help me out… I think this is a Ficus thonningii also known as the Wild Fig or Strangler Fig– Strangler because it likes to grow next to a host tree and in time take over that tree’s skeleton completely…

Why is the Weekly Photo Challenge’s commentary already closed?
