JACKSON CREEK TRAIL - A couple of weeks ago, Beau and I took a photo hike along the Jackson Creek Trail entering the McDonald National Forest. The next few photographs will come from that hike. Right now, there is lots of moss everywhere. Thus the opening shot.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Really nicely processed. In July I was surprised to find moss on some of the trees at Pt. Reyes Natl. Seashore. Not like deep southern Spanish moss in feel, color, or texture -- but seems to occupy the same niche.

Barbara from Florida, United States

I really do like your vintage treatment as you have used before. Wonderful capture of texture. Reading through the comments it tells me this is slightly different than our Spanish moss, therefore answering my guestion.
Very nice, Jack.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb.
