Weekly Travel Theme: Wood

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.

    • 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…
