Yow!! What an amazing place! And what a stunning photograph. Is this at the top of a fall? Man I love those roots. And the moss. And the light. Did you use an ND filter? Great result.

Thank you Duc Tu for you visit and comments, I'm happy you like it!


Thank you Gisela good to hear from you my friend!


It's one of those places that no photo will ever be able to recreate Ken. It is indeed at the top of the falls but actually only feeds half of it, the other half is fed by another source although I wasn't able to confirm that part of the story. If you think the moss is wild here you should see the bottom of the falls, it was like walking on a 12" thick cloud of moss in places.

I love moss and have replaced my entire lawn with moss (actually I didn't do it, nature did, I just let it happen).

But nothing I have seen compares to this, except perhaps the fender of a truck in one of your other images.

This is an awesome image Ken and deserving of much congratulations.

Please send moss - David the moss gatherer.

Thanks for the great comments David. A friend and I were just talking about growing moss, he said he saw something on TV saying to put moss and milk in a blender and distribute the "moss shake" wherever you wish it to grow. Not sure if it works but you can always check here for more tips on moss gardening!

Sorry Ken as an international know-it-all I have of course got to say, been that and tried that.

Here's the problems...

*the moss roots almost always contain some sand.... see wife for more details on what she said when I put moss in blender!

*the resulting moss and milk (buttermilk is best, look for sell-by-date reductions) is still too big to go through the holes of a watering can! See wife for more comments on cleaning out her watering can......

I will take some shots of my efforts when the lighting is right.

Thanks for that David

I'll be looking forward to those pics David!
