To thank Grzeg for his kind dedication I thought I'd post just the sort of photo I know he loves best.
So,here ya go Grzegzzy MOSS MOSS & MORE MOSS
May the moss in your life go on forever!
As long as we have moss in our lives then there is hope.
May global warming never get to the point where our planet is too dry to sustain this wonderful greenery.

This is the stream bed at Bullock Creek at a place where the river runs in and out of caves beneath the mossy boulders and logs.The boulders themselves were probably once the roof of an old cave that existed here.
Now new ones are being formed below.

Hope you like this shot of one of my favourite places in the Paparoa Ranges of the West Coast.

Hello Steve,
it sure is a most beautiful place. It's wonderful how all these greens create a very nice ambiance in the picture. I've seen most beautiful places with all kind of mosses and ferns on the west coast. Great picture, Jacob

Hi Steve,

I think Grzeg like this shot very well. He's crazy about moss. The photo is beautiful. It's look a bit 3D. And what a difference in (green) colors. Very nice composition. Nice POV

Hello Steve! Amazing colors. Amazing perspective. Very original shot. Best regards!

What a rich growth of moss on the boulders, Steve!
The green colour over-powers the senses here.
You have chosen the details within the frame very judiciously to make an excellent composition.
TFS and regards.

Hi Steve,
Excellent variations of deep green colors, a moss paradise!
Great detail, DOF, and exposed well..
I find this environment/scene packed with interesting shapes, contours, highs, lows...the moss just goes on forever.
And as long as there is moss..there's hope :)
Well done!

Hi Steve,
This is a wonderful shot of this moss covered place with such sharp details and lovely green colour tones. Looks beautiful and must be slippery too. Superb lighting and I like the natural setting very much. Great POV to portray this charming scenery and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Namastay Steve,
Wow! What an image. Lovely composition and a very good and well managed DOF to present this beautiful bed of Moss. Beautiful colors too.
Thanks a lot for sharing.
