Photo of the Day: Upended Tree Shows Roots, Morton Grove, IL
August 20, 2013
Here’s today’s shot.
Interesting to think about the way the elements eroded the roots of the tree.
I took today’s photo in Morton Grove, IL, behind the shopping center where the old Chernin’s Shoes was. It was an autumn day (see the leaves!) and I was there to take photos for my friends Gary and Lancy getting engaged.
I saw this upended tree and thought the spectacle of the exposed roots was worth a shot. Didn’t do anything special for settings. Just point and shoot with my Sony a700.
I’m certainly no nature expert so I’m not sure if this tree’s roots separating the soil was the result of natural erosion or if the stream is a man made thing but it was a thing to behold.
