The source of the above image is a wonderful cluster of roots and branches along the edges of the Silver River in Silver Springs Florida. I took a portion of the original photo (roughly outlined in red, see below), duplicated it, flipped the dupe horizontally and then butted the two images together to form the totally different creation appearing above.

(The original photo is also the source for 2 other, very different, composites.)

Kayaking in Silver Springs can be a very tranquil and beautiful experience:

However, as we approach the shoreline, up close to Cypress tree roots and "knees," another, more exciting and mysterious world appears (at least for me).

In the gnarly, twisted shapes I see the forms of spirits and demons lurking....
