This is the fourth in a series of posts of black and white photographs I am offering in response to a challenge by the Woodland Gnomes at Forest Garden.
You can tell a lot about a person by looking at his/her woodpile. Has it been thrown together haphazardly or stacked neatly, gaps minimized and ends aligned?
This woodpile was obviously built by one who is concerned about how it stands and looks. I was intrigued by the combination of growth rings and saw cuts in the ends of the logs. Their individual shapes, edges, and bark are different, and yet the builder has found a way to minimize the gaps between them. The resulting pile is balanced, orderly, and unlikely to fall.
My thanks to the Woodland Gnomes at Forest Garden for their invitation to join this challenge. One more to go.
