Florissant Tree

One last post from Florissant for Skywatch Friday, this time a non-fossilized tree. The spiral pattern down the bark means it was struck by lightning sometime in the past, a very common sight in this part of the world where thunderstorms can be a daily occurrence in the summer.


  1. I have added Florrisant to my 'must visit in Colorado next time' list. Thank you for both posts --

  2. Why is it that a bare tree draws our attention and makes such a great shot. Cool.

  3. Nice capture. I never knew that about the spiral pattern down the bark!

  4. Very interesting!
    I have never seen lightning scars on trees in a spiral like that. Here they come straight down the trunk. Some trees survive, some don't.
    Have a great week-end!

  5. Great capture for Sky watch friday! Happy weekend!

  6. The journey of a photographer

    Through his camera
    Al loves nature

    Through his inspiration
    Al creates friendships

    Every time he clicks
    a new human look begins

    For ever his hand
    will travels our thoughts
    to the land of the warmest feelings

    Yannis Politopoulos
