Blurring the line of stone and cell by 

My toes lie deep inside you,
your history feeds my now,
my skin mirrors yours,
only my leaves tell another story.

This tree is growing out at almost right angles from the rock face as it reaches for the light, while it’s roots seem to be part of the rock itself.
Taken at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

  • Thank you Paulus, it really was quite strange seeing how the two seemed to become one
