Some of the most gorgeous pictures I’ve ever taken are of tree roots. For example, my first “photographic” picture I ever took was of a tree’s roots at Balboa Park. That tree is a popular spot for engagement shots and other photography. (Don’t believe me? Do a Google image search for “Balboa Park tree roots”.)

I took this picture of tree roots at Lake Cuyamaca this past weekend when we took the dogs up to see the snow. Clearly… it wasn’t cold enough for snow. Just another sunny winter day in San Diego! The water must get this high at some point during the year, and over time washed away the dirt that covers these roots. I’m not sure how they got their shape though.
