Bark Mosaic


This is one of the trees standing along the street where the bench from yesterday is located.

I though the coloration and texture of the tree bark was interesting. Does anyone know what kind of tree it is? Sycamore?

yes the texture and colours are great ,, well spotted , but unfortunately i can't help you finding the name of the tree ;)

Yes. It is a beautiful mosaic. It would be a good pattern for a nihon-ga painting.

Sycamore was certainly my first guess but I’m going to go for Japanese Zelkova. After all, as a tree, it is a symbol of Saitama Prefecture: Zelkova serrata.

sorry, have no idea either, but looking at it closely gives me goosebumps! ^0^

Cool, Kaori. Really like shots like this. Lived with a landscape architect for ten years and still don't know the difference between a pine and a cypress... so I can't help in the ID game.

this too will pass said...

great textures

I am so ignorant about trees, but you got a very creative couple of shots with a perfect title!

Haha you notice the quirkiest things! I dunno if I would have noticed this myself. This natural mosaic is pretty :)
