Butt Swell

We had a severe drought this winter and the Waccamaw River swamp was pretty dry. You could walk many places that would normally require a boat. Did you ever notice how cypress trees are larger at the base then narrow to the normal trunk size? A forester friend of mine gave me the technical term for this condition... butt swell. A good many humans have this condition too. ;-o

I'm drawn to abstracts that use motion blur. This is exceptional. I love what you've done with this cypress grove.

Very nice. I particularly like how the bit of sky at th top fives a hint about what the subject actually is.

Obviously I meant to say "gives" a hint.
