Photographer's Note

It wasn't until I ducked under the sprawling leaves of this redwood that I saw the most unusual tree trunk I have ever seen. The foreground branch just beckoned and drew me closer as if animated.

This is one of the hundreds tree specimens grown at the "Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University that is the oldest public arboretum in North America and one of the world's leading centers for the study of plants." from the Arboretum website.
