Nice shot looking down.

I love that down shot and echo what Bynx said. Your second shot kind of puts things in perspective for the whole series. Good job.

Alan,

The set of photos is almost surreal with the ample moss and the second shot almost like peering up the skirt of the tree.

You must not get much sunlight to have such a heavy coating of moss.

Aloha

I think it's lichen, some of the most primitive and durable organisms on Earth. They'll be here long after we've gone. We've had such weather over the last year that they've grown all over the roof of my campervan, and I truly have a 'green' vehicle at last, in spite of its 2.5L diesel engine.

Again Selvin, funny you should say that. Immediately I mentioned the title of our current shootout to my 80-year-old mother-in-law last night, she alluded to acurrent issue in our national press, to do with obnoxiously intrusive tabloid newspaper paparazzi and female celebrities alighting at award ceremonies, plus yet another breed of horribly grubby websites.

I don't know what the octogenarians of today are coming to!

The down shot make you want to hold on the something to keep from falling. Great colors in that shot, they are very unusual looking.

Thanks. The striking colours are because Spring has just arrived suddenly in a big way, so there's verdant fresh growth among last year's dead leaves.
