Mossy

Old tree

When we hiked through a rainforest in the Pacific Northwest, I couldn’t help but admire the mosses. Soft green covered every stump, every broken branch. The fantastic shapes of the forest made me feel like I was in a science fiction novel.

Anon: Yep, that's my husband walking through the rainforest. I needed a figure in there to give perspective.

Wonderful back light on the moss in the first image. Such an intriguing habitat.

Aaah that looks amazing! Sun-Kyu and I have been aspiring bryophiles ever since we read Robin's book. :)
