It’s by no means unusual to see strange and rather sinister things growing on tree trunks. However, this fungus was unusual in that it looked as if somebody had cut a segment out of it, revealing the dark, almost liverish, interior – which was, if anything, even more unsettling.
This photograph was taken in the garden of George Sand’s house at Nohant, in central France.
Nikon D800 with Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8 lens at 70mm. 1/90 at ƒ5.6 ISO3200 (it was quite gloomy among the trees). Cropped and edited in Lightroom.
