Front view of the tree – growing at the bottom of the rift, against a huge wall of rocks…

This is the most courageous little tree I ever saw… Simply holding on… :)

Photograph made in Hell’s Gate National Park Kenya, Part of the Rift Valley (Wikipedia ) – where trees struggle for life in a vast landscape of rock and stone…

Technical details:

Photograph made with a Pentax MEsuper film camera and scanned from photo.

    This looks like a cool abstract! Very cool!

  • You think so? … thank you Lynn – didn’t really think of this one as an abstact – rather the close-up of the roots… but you may well be right… Thanks for helping me broaden my view on it! – and of course thanks for your kind comment!
