I am still fascinated by the moss. It always puts on a show.

That shot certaintly has the WOW factor going for it. Love it!!!


My 'young' husband (he was 10 years older than I) went on to greater things a little over two years ago--we were together almost 50 yrs. I guess it was meant to be. MB

Where you going?

I like the moss. Some call it a parasite. Not sure if that would be correct. I remember Gone with the Wind stories and the oaks and lanes with moss dripping from the trees. Must have been a sight to see.

I love taking pictures of Spanish moss. I don't like it when it touches me though.

It does glow with a fiery brilliance! I'm glad you got a break from photographing snow-covered trees for a while. This makes for a lovely change.

Beautiful! It's an inspiring sun-rise scene. Seeing such beauty and wonder first thing in the morning would make me want to go out and seize the day.

Beautiful shot, but honestly, at first glance my eyes saw visions of Apocalypse Now..... napalm. Sick, I know.

Sunny said...

Sunbeams dancing through the firey glow...very unique.

Spanish moss is terminally ugly and dirty, but you've made it look splendiforous!

nice silhouettes painted by a declining sun.

I like the moss shots. You've done it one better with the sun angling through.

It certainly looks warm. I'll have some of that too, please.
