Gnarled Tree Trunk in Central Park - Black & White

While wandering around Central Park in spring, I stumbled upon a most compelling tree. It is difficult to describe the kind of feeling it triggered, but I simply could not overlook that tree. It was showcasing its gnarled trunk as evidence of how it withstood a lifelong struggle and yet grew stronger and greater. The gnarls and knots on the trunk make my black and white photo look very much like a portrait.
