Crimson

In the bright green forest, this bright crimson decaying tree really stood out!

  1. What a beautiful rich photo. We recently spent some time in Oregon and I was intrigued by the moss growing on everything

  2. That is really remarkable, such color. It looks to me that the trunk is about to come down.

  3. Striking colours. I want to go back to Oregon once more so badly - your blog is a great way to keep my Fernweh (it's like being homesick, but for foreign places) at bay.

    You just want to go and sit under that tree, and give it a good, big hug! What power in this ...

  13. It's been decaying for quite some time, as I can see through the trunk!

    SEEING RED

    Tonight, my dear, I’m seeing red—
    Or is it puce or rose?
    Whatever’s going round my head
    Is tingling all my toes.

    My heart, my dear, becomes inflamed
    With passion sore ablaze;
    Perhaps it is because I miss
    Your glowing, crimson gaze.

    Whate’er the cause, my face is flushed
    Like a ripened cherry,
    No longer healthy, but inflamed—
    See the vessels serry*?

    A certain sanguine aftertaste
    Is clinging to my tongue,
    For I have kissed your ruby lips—
    To which the claret clung.


    *serry – (archaic) to crowd closely together
