Pagan Eye: Roots and Branches

I saw this tree with almost all of its roots exposed while walking on the South Downs last weekend. The tree was growing at the side of a pit - probably man-made.

I'm sure it can't be too good for the tree to have so many roots exposed to the air rather than sunk deep into solid earth, but I thought it was worth photographing. It was rather gloomy in the pit and I had to overexpose the photo a lot, otherwise the roots were lost in shadow. I also had to Photoshop out some litter that was entangled at the base of the tree.

Next time I go for a walk, I'll take a rubbish sack. Not only is it public-spirited to clear up other people's mess - it is also easier than using Photoshop!

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com. Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
