Hello Annick,
Interesting image of the bark, or periderm of an unknown tree. The shadow of the branch is a nice addition to the composition but the bark itself has a texture that looks a bit like the skin of an elephant after a clean bath.
The whole effect is almost abstract and an unusual posting.
TFS it!

Hello Annick,
Superb and fantastic shot of a periderm. Perfect!
TFS and Regards,

Hi Annick

Lovely image of the bark. Good use of light and texture here - rather like Markus' work.

Hi Annick!

I like this abstract picture very much. It looks more like a painting and this corresponds to the way I like taking pictures. The shapes and the colours are very pleasant and let the door to the free interpretation wide open.

Kind regards


Hi my beloved friend Annick,
Superb details of a surface structure of a periderm. This is also an atristic shot:) Many thanks for sharing and best regards,
