McGuire Tree Bark with Lichens
I have been going to a new area of the hills called McGuire Peaks in Sunol Regional Park. The peaks are a very quiet place where access is a little more difficult so many of the visitors to the park never even get near the trails.
This wonderful and relatively unspoiled area must have been part of a ranch as all of these hills were before they were reclained from private hands. The loop trail was a road at one point and now it is covered with soft delacate grass as the hill begins to heal itself.
I had climbed a good part of the way up to one of the peaks and made some photographs. I stopped to have a rest and do some food and water and discovered that the tree I chose as a rest area was heavily encrusted with lichens and moss.
I set up and made a 50 megapixel vertorama of the tree trunk by slipping the stem of my tripod incrementally up to its fullest extent.
I hope you enjoy the result!!!!
This is a 50 megapixel image made from a number of frames of Canon 5D Mk II data shot with the 24-105mm lens.

The desktop art dated 2010 and 2011 very strongly resembles a float mounted print hanging on a colored wall.
