Over at ‘Where’s my Backpack?‘, Ailsa has invited us to show images on the theme of ‘Wood’. I have seen a number of different wood carvers’ work on my travels, both contemporary and old, famous and unknown.
I wanted to show an image of Tilman Riemenschneider’s wonderful carved Holy Blood altar from the Jakobskirche in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany. But could I find my photo?
So instead I am showing some natural wood, colourful bark of trees seen in woodland in Alsace, France.
Head over to Ailsa’s blog for more interpretations of Wood
very colourful – they look as though they have been painted!
They were rather wonderful! 🙂
Love the color and texture,,,Great photo.
Thank you, Charlie. I love the colours of tree bark, and the different textures you can get….these trees ticked both boxes for me!
Marvelous hues in just one stand! Well done!
Thanks, Kathryn! I debated what to post for this, couldn’t find the image of the Riemenschneider altar, then came across this image that I had forgotten about….sorted!
Nice work as ever Sue!
Lovely capture, Susan! I hope you’ll find the photo though, I’d love to see your image of T.Riemenschneider’s work.
Have a lovely day!
Thanks Dina! The Riemenschneider image was taken quite some time ago, and not with my SLR, so won’t have been fantastic! The hunt is still on…
That’s annoying when you can’t find a photo that you want. I like what you posted in its place though 🙂
Ah well, win some, lose some!! Glad you liked my woods 🙂
nature colourful bark of trees, how cool!
