I don't think any photographer could have resisted this strangely shaped tree spotted growing on a river bank one evening. It's actually a tree being smothered by a vine or creeper of some description and although you can't really tell from the photo stands at least 4 metres tall. Such vine covered trees are common in many areas and when the vine has completely encased the tree, as it has in this case, you can imagine huge mythical animals or ents!
This had very similar processing to another photo I took at the same time in the same area
