A deformed she-oak by the highway

Regular slashing keeps the bank uninteresting, unless you're walking.

This detail from a Casuarina , commonly called a she-oak (though she-oaks look like pines), was so startling, I thought at first glance that a snake had shed its skin in the scrawny 1.5 metre sapling.

Oh lord, Anna, what a gorgeou image this one is! Not sure what it is about it, but it is striking!
