Nature’s knots!

While gazing upward at the most incredible mountains I have ever seen, I nearly missed something else, which was just as amazing.

The mountains were the mighty Drakensberge in South Africa. The walk I was on will appear in a later post, as it really needs a story on its own.

imageAs if teasing the walker to tear their attention from the towering crags, these beautiful knotty tree trunks almost trip you up, as you go by. Demanding their share of attention… and why not?

They are so lovely. Have you ever seen trunks wound around each other like this? Maybe vines in a rainforest?

    Hi there. That’s truly amazing. I’ve seen many forms created by trees but never ever that kind 🙂 Specially the one in the first picture ❤ 🙂

    the first one is kinda scary – but what a cool capture – nature’s knots – and I have seen vines but never knots like these 🙂


  3. No, I have never seen anything this unusual. Thanks for the walk and the pictures. 🙂
