Screaming Tree

I've always been amazed how many times we can look at the same scene and never notice what's right before our eyes.

Take this tree for example.

I know I've looked at it a hundred times. But on one particular day I looked up and noticed this face staring back at me.

At first I wasn't sure that what I saw was really there. But staring at it longer I knew it was a face. The longer I stared, the more features I noticed.

But what did it mean? Does it mean anything? Is it the result of totally random circumstances that produced this ghoulish effect? Or is there some deeper significance?

My first thought was of Edvard Munch's famous painting, The Scream. Or maybe it was the mask from the movie, Scream. Or perhaps this is just a tree screaming in anguish over the way man is destroying the environment around it.

For those who think these images are nothing more than a cool Photoshop trick, I assure you this is real. None of the photos on this page are retouched in any way!

At left and below are two other views of the tree. It appears to be a depression left from where a large limb used to be.
