 The root system to a Bald Cypress, the consensus was  they looked like aliens, and gophers or little people...just depending on your outlook on life I guess...lol
 I love pathways and find myself taking pictures of them, especially if they have a bridge! This picture made me think of Thomas Kinkade.
 The azeala garden was stunning!
My best macro picture so far...
 Using natural framing for a picture of a statue
