I studied this gnarl and I found it to be fascinating on a tree in Hermann Park, Houston, TX. There are many images to be found, some women, some animals, what do you see?

    I see what looks like a young boy hunched over cradling a dog in his lap toward the bottom right side of the tree...Above his head is a lady figure with the arm raised holding an object in her hand ...Old gnarled trees like this hold many interesting things to see and it is a good capture.

    Just as life. This gnarl was formed by some injury to the tree and has added character to the tree.

    Very cool shot, Ann. I see a woman waving her arms and a most unhappy hunched over old man.
