Barbara, this ios another example of that magical eye that you have to discover and then beautifully compose and convey an image. This image is right out of a children's book with the furry cratures and furry trees and furry twisty arms. That dreamlike essence....I am just awestruck. The beautiful "reddish redwood" ;-) as a backdrop, coupled with the golden/green moss and the brown leaves at the top all just bounce so beautifully off this image. My wall is running out of space!

@Denny Jump Photo: Oh, Denny! You should hire yourself out as a commentator for the local camera clubs, you are so creative and deeply thoughtful with your comments! Yes, it does look like something out of a fairytale but I did not see this until you mentioned it!

I agree! Denny has said it so well....I love the Dr. Seuss quality of the mossy tree. Just fantastic!

Beautifully handled and interpreted, Barbara. The many textures are so perfectly defined and the moss enhanced. A marvelous and artful effect.

There is so much implied movement here. Although static, it looks very much alive.
