A Broken Tree



 This large fir tree split away near the base tumbling down a steep slope.  Just a small sliver of its former massive self was left standing leaving the interior structure of the trunk exposed.



Close by off to the side was a nice collection of bracket fungi.
That is a silk web in the right corner.

shame the demise of the tree, I guess the rest will live on for quite some time still. I love the bracket fungi

I like the patterns revealed by the splitting of the trunk. I see that your fungi are beginning to appear; such wonderful shapes too.

I had a big CA Pepper tree that split like this. Had a bee infestation in the trunk. Tree is still alive but much smaller.
