Moss, Lichen and Scenery 1

line

Lichen 1

This Lichen caught my eye on top of a hill in Shropshire in September - it looks like a species called Usnea but all references have it listed as a tree Lichen - this looked healthy and is a good sign of clean air free from polution.

Mossy Scene 1

Admittedly there isn't a lot of Moss or Lichen in this photo but the scene is made due to the placement of the Moss - if you are like me and have an incling toward Pareidolia (to see faces in objects) then you may spot a variety of creatures in this photo - photo taken at Hackfall Woods, Grewelthorpe, North Yorkshire.

A full head of Moss give this scene something for the imagination to work with - photo taken in woods next to Thruscross reservoir Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

This photo shows that you can't underestimate a good old Silver Birch - note how 4 new trees are growing from one felled trunk - photo taken at Gowbarrow woods in the Lake District.

line

Mossy Scene 9

This tree trunk splits into two seperate trees and stands at the top of a very steep drop - I imagine that the root system must have buried into to rocky ground to allow it not to fall - photo taken in the Brecon Beacons area.
