Looking out of a window of a restaurant looking at the trunk of a tree covered in moss. The trunk was cracked and split. It might have been diseased. It was just interesting to see. It made an odd thing to photograph.
Its outside the Red Cow pub up in Werrington. There are views out into the countryside there and the food is really good (if its being served still).
Roots can be interesting and exciting. Just be duplicating a picture you can get something fascinating. This looks like a spider to me, but someone else suggested a beetle about to fly. Or I guess it could be a land crab?
Anyway see what you think, have you got any images you can play with and create flights of fancy?
A cracked trunk up on Werrington Bank. I think the spikey stuff is Christmas lighting. I just liked the look of it, like a miniature forest growing on the tree. I think it gets very wet up there, hence the moss growth. The bark looks damaged and cracked, so the moss has taken advantage of the broken surface.
Found this lumpy moss on the church wall. It was lovely, little blobs growing on the old stone, even though its close to a busy road. It’s at the top of the hill so the wind scours across the hill top. Sometimes the wind is so strond it could blow you off your feet..
Moss is an interesting plant, the reproduction is by spores I think, and it needs damp conditions to live in. I’m sure people know more about it than I do. Anyway I took a couple of photos as an idea if what it looked like.
I then did a duplicated picture of it because it made an interesting pattern.
