hehehe, couldn't decide which way around the title should go it could be rock cracking tree! This was on the pathway to the viewing point at Fox Glacier.Amazing how one small ridge in a rock can be opened up and split the rock by one tree root!

It's like David conquering Goliath; that a tree root could crack a rock. Well spotted and interesting shot!

This is an amazing shot, Maxine. Not one to miss, hey. Great detail. Love the leaves and 'whatever' on the ground as though they've been shaved off as the tree 'saws' though. Great.
