Long ago a sizable limb was pruned from this manzanita tree along a trail near our Jacksonville, OR home. The bark has attempted but failed to heal the large wound. The tree lives on in good health.
Meanwhile aging of wood has pigmented the tree rings with alternating shades of gray and a variety of brightly colored micro flora have found nurture.
This is typical glistening dark red manzanita bark.
I captured the image at about 4’ distance with a Voigtlander 50mm Apo-Lanthar on a Sony a7Riii, f/8 1/25" ISO 200 handheld bracing against another tree, and processed to my liking in Topaz AI Sharpen and LrC. Light was flat, low clouds, mist, yielding even illumination across the subject (sky was a big diffuser).
