Wonders of Nature

This tree sits at the bottom of our hill next to a stream where all the mountain runoff from rain and snow collects.  It's the shape that captured my interest making one wonder how on earth it grew this way.  Terry seems to think that at one time another tree fell leaning on this one forcing the growth to curve before the one tree rotted and fell to the ground.

Worked in the Moleskine WC sketchbook.  Three pens were used for this sketch:  TWSBI, Platinum Carbon, and the Pilot Prera with the dry feeding nib.........all with Lexington Gray Ink.

This was before our last snow storm when the previous snow was starting to melt showing some areas of ground.

Susan - this is beautiful work. I love how you captured the melting snow. What an interesting way for the tree to grow. Hope you are having a super day.
