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.

    Marvelous hues in just one stand! Well done!

  4. 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…

  5. That’s annoying when you can’t find a photo that you want. I like what you posted in its place though 🙂
