Grandfather Stump


Photo Information
This stump is about 150 years old. The roots have hardly rotted, but his old crown shows the ravages of our Canadian weather.
I paddle my kayak past him every day, and thought I'd introduce him to my camera friends.

It must have been a very impressive tree when still alive. Well captured

Thank you, Stan.

I'll try to get a shot of the root structure that's under the surface of the lake. Most impressive. Will have to be "fun with polarizers".

Many thanks Larry.

I believe that Grandfather is the guardian of our little lake, and I wish him Good Morning every time I pass. So far, no other person has witnessed this greeting and therefore, I'm not known as the loon in the boat.

I seem to recall beggars in Toronto were happy with a "looney" but due to inflation were soon asking for a "two-ney". This was back in 1998. I wonder what the minimum is now
