When I was a kid we used to play under these trees... the way the roots grow down they made perfect forts, so we called the "Fort Trees". I grew up on different islands in the Pacific, moving around a lot (military brat).

This was taken in 2006 with a HORRIBLE point & shoot (an old Nikon E4800).

I just did some post on it to play with it, thought I would share the results.

Wonderful example of this interesting tree!! It does indeed look massive. Thanks for sharing the pic with us
See? It's the photographer, not the camera! :) Well done (and, in my mind, extremely spooky. Not a fan of roots.)
Wow, massive tree, never seen anything like that before :) And I think the pic came out quite OK
At first I didn't care for the post processing you did... but coming back a second time I actually like it quite a bit. It looks sort of "dreamy" or something. Very cool post processing.
Very cool tree. "Banyan" style trees have inspired quite a following in the tropical bonsai world. Many types of ficus and a few other tropical species will grow in this form under the right conditions.
