Friendly Trees

I'd seen these trees on numerous occasions as I'd walked through the bush in Totara Park, but never quite worked out how to take a picture so you'd see just how friendly the trees really are.  This image is a 5 shot Hugin stitch that has then been processed in PhotoMatix Pro as an HDR in an attempt to lighten the foliage and give more definition to the tree trunks.

The tree to the left has some odd shapes in the lower part of its trunk ... make you wonder what was going on when it was a sapling.  Now look up the tree and you'll note that its wrapped a branch or two around its neighbour.

As far as I can tell, both trees are alive and well and probably benefit from the added stability two sets of roots provide!
