Cee’s FFC: Weathered Wood

I have a couple of ‘weathered wood’ pics for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week. The first one, the oldest wood I’ve ever seen, is in Yellowstone National Park.

It’s a petrified redwood, and according to the plaque next to it, is about 50 million years old.

A few days after I took this next photo of an old dead tree in my old home town of Umhlanga South Africa, it was ripped out of the ground in a violent storm, and toppled over into the road.

Wishing you all a splendid and fun weekend.

  1. Two great photos with interesting stories. Amazing to see such an old tree at Yellowstone. It was very timely that you photographed the other one just before it came down. All those roots stretching out made it look almost like an alien tree creature.

  4. As they say if only trees could talk …
    Love how the bleached out effect is emphasised in B&W in the second picture Sylvia ..

  5. The Banyan-looking tree looks scary. It looks like some kind of creature lives inside it. πŸ˜€ You know a picture is nicely captured when it got an effect to the viewer. πŸ˜‰

  6. That’s incredible. I came across a 950 year old tree at The Norfolk Broads a couple of years ago, but that’s just a baby compared to 50 million years! Ahh..so sad about your old tree back home…but it looks as if it lived a good, long life. Have a great weekend Sylvia, see you soon πŸ™‚ xx
