Old redwood ..oops pic. Not a burl, a hollow
    The pic before and after were fine. On an old iPhone 4, after a 10 mile hike..didn't even know it was taken..(probably hit take a pic button from tired shakey-lets get home and have dinner hands) ha. Oh, growing up in redwoods, I know what 'burl' is; like a huge wooden blob or bump growing from a trunk-at any height.

This was a hole though...there was nothing when I stepped in. (were the face or whatever that is)in except a soda can (dang litter-ers). Armstrong woods; tree trunk about 9ft wide. So, old, old, old tree. Bad lighting- thoughts? (Dare I ask..)

Interesting shot. Forest spirit? Play of the light? Hard to say from a single still. Frustrating, isn't it? Always seems to be the way... maybe we're not intended to prove the spirit realm?

Here's a pic a bit more clear! ....
   
True.....it was unintended- we looked at our pics after we got home....and went-"um, that looks weird? Shadow?" The hike is really peaceful, (though kinda tiring, up up up...) but these trees are sooo old, it's amazing. It takes any stress out of you : )

But interesting, it had been 'forested' when discovered....mid-1800's or so~ and then protected because of its amazingness. When hiking , there are some stumps from old foresting, & you give up counting the rings after 300! Some are more than 2,000 yrs old. I love em!! So, that pic moment was a peaceful one-a tired one from hike and heat, but its sort of surreal thinking of what was going on 1,500+ yrs ago...and standing among these trees who were growing then, and now too! ~

Too true. There's still a small stand of old growth at Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island. The feel of that space is awesome.
