I like the detail in this, especially the lower portion of the tree in the foreground.

Thanks Ken for leaving a comment. It was raining when I took this and, this winter being one of the driest in many years, the moss on that tree, and all around, was loving the moisture. The intensity of the green was amazing. This really didn't capture the scene adequately, and I wasn't even going to upload it, but I saw your recent series including rock garden and felt some connection between this scene and those. You can't tell from this shot, but between the tree and the rocks behind it there is a stream, which becomes a waterfall just to the right, so this place is more similar to the one in your series that you might think from this picture alone. I would have taken more pictures, but working under an umbrella is a pain in the *!
