Frisco Root Tangle - Study #1, July 9th, 2015
Roots. Never will they cease to be objects of fascination and curiosity. In the course of many walks through the woods this photographer has never failed to be transfixed by roots whether hidden, semi-exposed, or out in the air. More times than can be recalled have I stumbled over them, trod on them, and fallen into holes left by their uprooting. This is true of all the places in which I have lived or visited. Colorado was no different. On a hike with friends I found entrancing evidence of that which binds us to family, soil, place. The eyes were overjoyed while the heart sang. Nature itself had wrought violence upon this tree, it is true, but the truth of its existence was a gift for all of us to share.
