Calke Abbey Spring 7/7

To finish this series another fine old tree trunk laying by the path to the lake at the edge of the Car Park, no doubt a home for all sorts of creepy crawlies.  Here is another picture I took on the same visit.

So sad to see old trees - but part of life's cycle isn't it!
Brian Walbey: Yes Elizabeth, like yesterdays I guess it will slowly rot away to nothing.
I like the composition of the log
Brian Walbey: It has a fence all round it so it isn't possible to take a picture of it from any other direction.

As Elizabeth says part of life's cycle, but it will take an age for this to rot away. Much better as logs for my fire ;o)
Brian Walbey: My daughter wouldn't mind this for her fire either I suspect Mike.

A very impressive photo!

"The tree the tempest with a crash of wood
Throws down in front of us is not to bar
Our passage to our journey's end for good,
But just to ask us who we think we are

Insisting always on our own way so.
She likes to halt us in our runner tracks.."

(Robert Frost)
Old trees are replaced by new ones.
Nice composition Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed they are Richard, and one day this will be one of the old ones.
nice one sir.
imagine the stories this old fella could tell....
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob. I wonder if the master of the house went a'courtin under this old tree many years ago.
A haven for insects and fungi!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Tom, a Naturalists paradise.
I suppose there is a sort of connection between this and my picture today as both reflect the cycle of nature. For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, in years to come this will be but dust as will the log I showed on Saturday.

Fine textures to this, Brian. The horse chestnut beyond is in good leaf already.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.

Whao!

Get out the enlargement filters, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Ray, an unusual shaped log.
