Ancient Oak

It is still alive, with many large green branches, but it has suffered the ravages of time, and must now put up with clinging vines and drooping moss.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

This is an impressively large oak... good one to spot and shoot. The vines and moss add an interesting aspect to the life and future of this old tree. Well done.
