The lichen tree

All the trees seem to get covered with lichen and moss in the wet environment of the Elan Valley.

That's such a nicer word than moss. It's so humid in Arkansas this stuff never dies and in the summer emits such an odor along with allergens to make me run away smile You've made it into a thing of beauty. I'm guessing you're above it. I love craggy trees. You must have been hanging from a sky hook smile
John Prior: Thanks Sherri, yes the tree was down a steep slope.
That is amazing John..It makes a good picture.
John Prior: Thank you Ron
It's tje most unpatterned pattern shot I think I have ever seen John.
John Prior: Thanks Brian
I have an awful lot of this on the trees in my garden! smile It makes a good image smile
John Prior: Thank you Linda, It does seem to be more widespread now, perhaps a sign of climate change?
