Rowan of the gods

Trees never cease to amaze. Some are incredibly beautiful, some like the redwoods grow to enormous heights, and others seem to have remarkable powers of survival. Erupting out of the side of the wall like some withered and mummified arm, the sun-bleached timber on the stem of this lone tree far out numbers the amount of living cambium and is still alive; seemingly immortal, this rowan actually made me stop in my tracks; I can only conclude that the gods of small trees are making some magic happen here!
