[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At the Harkone Bamboo Forrest we saw the largest bamboo ever and the most vast forest of the stuff. It is hard to believe bamboo is in the grass family.

Bamboos are the fastest growing woody plants in the world. Their growth rate (24 in./day) is due to a unique rhizome-dependent system, but is highly dependent on local soil and climate conditions.

Very interesting image Michael,
You show a whole different perspective in this eye catching shot!! Bamboo has always amazed me because of it's very smooth texture and lasting durability. TFS.
