Roots

I took this photo on our monday hike and was simply impressed by its sheer size and shape - you really had to be there to appreciate it - oh well here it is.

On a completely different tangent, check this video from YouTube if you have the time - I thought this was completely amazing - supposely, only 3 out of some 2000 athletes from around the world have successfully completed this:

If for nothing else then perhaps an inspiration for putting on those workout shoes =P

Big tree, nice photo. It remembers me some pics I've from sequoias in California, the Tule tree in Mexico or the Cajueiro in Piranji, Natal, Brazil (though these last two are actually huge!).
What a crazy video...

The size and shape of this tree lends itself to artistic composition. Creative. Good job!!

Holy wah?!!
That is an impressive tree!
Have you seen the Redwoods in CA? That was the most impressive tree experience I have had. It's amazing to think that some of those trees were alive when Jesus walked on the earth! That's old!

Fabulous photograph. Is this a type of fig? Curtain fig tree? Perhaps my memory is playing up.

And amazing video. The guy was so happy to get to the finish - good for him. Some achievement. I wonder if he's still a fisherman. He's probably wildly famous in Japan now.

When I was living in Ivory coast there were such trees we call them "fromagers"
I was young (I came back France when I was 14) so I don't remember much of them. They were not really near our home. However I was living in the forest
I have some photos of our family near the roots of one of these huge trees

It would have been interresting to have someone or something giving the scale of theses roots

Listening to my favorite online radio station Radio Paradise under headphones and visiting my favorite photo blogs before dinner is my treat at the end of the day. Of course, I love your photos...a huge fan of your talent!
