Bark and Pike

The forecast rain did not happen this morning, so we had some nice warm sunshine on us as we walked through Shipley Park this morning. Part of our walk took us across the top of Shipley Hill and it was here, that I was impressed by the craggy nature of some of the bark on the trees.
Getting a closer look, you could make out circular marks where old branches had once been attached, as well as various scars and clefts in the bark.
The patterns made by the bark was quite beautiful.
Turning homeward again, we passed across Parker's Bridge where our attention was caught by a Pike lurking in the shallow water.
Absolutely motionless, it waited for it's lunch to swim past.
