"To him that over cometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Revelation 2:7"

Paradise for me
Is not only in Hawaii,
But what one can see
In the creation of God
Beyond a dead tree...

┬ęPoetry by me AJP

I saw the face formation on this dead tree today and I did some shaping around the "nose" in photo shop to bring the features out and also made the background dark to remove some of the twigs poking through ....otherwise the design is still intact on the bark untouched...Just wanted to make this more clear what I saw in an old decayed tree which is quite large and the formation was on an upper edge of the tree .....Formations are fascinating but sometimes not always so evident if there is too much clutter in the way.

Best Viewed in light box! Thank you

Thank you so much Ronnie Ginnever for your kindness of the spotlight and nominating for photo of the week on 3/23/2017!!! You made my day!

    Andrea it takes a true artist to find detail like this in an old tree. Great shot!

    Thanks for the comments.... Fred, I sometimes felt a little freaky when in the past
    I used to point out these oddities in nature, or in cloud formations and not everyone could see it. it is all in training the eye to look for detail and mentally blocking the distraction around it when the object that catches the attention becomes clear...I don't know how to explain it any better than that.

    Well spotted.If it's the latter, these images are causing you to experience facial pareidolia, the psychological phenomenon of seeing faces in inanimate objects. ... But the good news for those who are prone to seeing little people in inanimate objects a sign of madness, it is in fact a sign of a well-wired brain.Quoted from Google Oct 20, 2015

    The article you mentioned James is very interesting. I typed facial pareidolia in google search and spotted the examples of faces immediately..In fact it was a very easy test!
    That was fun to read and thanks for the information!
