Banyan Trees

As a child I was always fascinated by banyan trees. When I saw one for myself I though how could the roots hang from the branches of the trees. These hanging roots have always led me into believing that they are some kind of ropes.

A few days back I saw one after many years. The roots of this tree had some-kind-of-a rippling effect. It reminded me of waves just that instead of water there was mud and instead of waves there were these roots surfacing above and below the mud.

It gave it an out of the world look.
