Here in the Rockies trees are blown over by the elements, sometimes by lighting or by high wind and many times with age trees will snap. This particular tree stump still had life. The evergreen like moss has taken over on a tree that no longer has life. It gives it life and color and continues to multiply along the ridges and crevices of the tree that was once there.
This particular tree stump intrigued me. Looking deep into the texture it almost appears as if it’s a scene from one of the Lord of the Ring movies. This is just one of the scenes from my hike last week into Rocky Mountain National Park.
