Occasional Creek, number 2

There's a plethora of mossy trees in the more shaded areas of my beloved Mount Tamalpais.   When the rains arrive the moss perks up and stands tall and proud.   And yes, it is just as vividly green as you see here.

I think that these sword ferns probably know exactly where they are and what is going on -- and are happy to be where they are.   Like the moss, they also seem to perk up with all of the available moisture.

More of those mossy trees.   The trees don't seem to mind -- sort of a warm jacket, I suppose, for all this cold weather we've been having.   (((brrrr)))

How about 'Every-once-in-awhile' creek?

The silence of the woods is deftening. Love the feeling your shots evoke in me. The one with the sunlite hightlights is a great composition.
This morning it was 26F at 7AM and now its a whopping 35F. at 9AM. An absolute heatwave!

I love the color green, and especially out in nature. You sure have the moss, as do I around here in the woods. Thanks for a great post of the outdoors.

I don't believe I've ever seen such thick moss. Very pretty.
