I had taken this shot from both the horizontal and vertical position. The horizontal shot looks like lovely fall leaves laying on some exposed tree roots. Although it might appear just a little creepy given the dark and twisted nature of the roots.
I took the vertical shot just to get a different perspective, and was pleased with the result, but didn’t see anything unusual about it until I looked at it on the computer. That gave me a completely different perspective.
This is an isolated shot of the upper part of the root.
Nothing special, right? Just damp and dark bulges of an old tree.
But here is the full vertical shot.
Do you see the nose and the huge eyes in that same section of root? To me it looks like a skull. With perhaps some leaves caught in a fossilized beard.
Do you notice the skull face more prominently in the second shot or the third?
Weigh in with comments!

More for the second one to me. Great observation, thank you for showing us.
You are most welcome. I was surprised to see the skeleton head shape myself!
Oooooh! Very cool – perfect timing too! 🙂
