Establish thou the work of our hands...Psalm 90: 17

I did a self portrait of my hands with our Duchess Apple tree to show for scale how large the formation is on this ancient tree. The formation reminds me of an elephant trunk...The tree is over 100 years old....I am surprised it is still standing but it is leaning more each year.

    Thank you for your comments... Donald, it is back of our house near the edge of our woods,
    and not close to our house.
