Creation #237. Wabi-sabi 25.


In bonsai we refer the basal flair of a tree’s surface roots as the nebari. This aspect of a bonsai is critical in establishing a feeling of both age and stability in a tree. In fact the nebari is so important in ranks as the first or second most important aspect of a tree’s value. Because I have internalized this aspect of bonsai training I can not help but totice the surface rootage of all trees, whether they are contained in a pot or growing naturally. As I have been browsing my archives for this series It seems that in most of my photography sessions there is at least one image of a tree’s surface rootage.

In this image I love how the moss has grown over the bark and the way the late afternoon sun is playing through the shadows of the surrounding forest and highlighting this tree’s base.
