Life in the woodpile

A bright day last week, a pleasant walk from Little Missenden to Old Amersham along the River Misbourne which always seems to retain water in this stretch, although a little further upstream at Great Missenden it dries up frequently. I like the textures and details in this kind of shot, found while exploring the hedgerow and river bank to the right.

I wonder what critters were lurking in the woodpile, watching your every move, John! smile
John Prior: No doubt loads of different ones were watching me with trepidationsmile
I agree, the texture are wonderful John and I love the moss on the logs, they must have been there a while. Lovely shot.
John Prior: Thanks a lot Sally

I love the texture & details in the decaying wood John
John Prior: Yes complete worlds really. I love the detail my A900 and NEX-7 capture, but as an addition to my already too many cameras, I've just ordered a Canon SX50 HS after reading several reviews, having a camera with a 24-1200mm equivalent lens that does a reasonable job quality wise and at fairly low cost seems too good to pass by. http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/canon_sx_50_review.shtml
A haven for many small animals. Your walks remind me of mine. I could take you to some interesting places.
John Prior: I like the way that the same walk can often provide completely different pictures and you see things in a new way.
What a haven for wildlife, and the mosses are already starting to take over I see.
John Prior: A complete other world Brian.
It will be teeming with life as it gradually decays. Lovely textures John
John Prior: Yes I wonder how many species could be discovered
Nice setting. Lots of tiny details to photograph.
John Prior: Thanks a lot, I'm a sucker for detailsmile
I like the textures and point of view here John
