Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture

I was enthralled with the rain forest in the Pacific Northwest when we visited. We are also looking forward to a visit to the rain forest of Alaska’s southeast so when I saw Cee’s word this week is texture I was very happy.

I was amazed at the thickness of the moss and how it covers everything.

I marveled at the different textures of the large stumps that were slowly decaying into the soil – and the new growth they supported.

We walked through a rain forest path leading to the Pacific beach and were treated to a sun-dappled mossy floor dotted with mushrooms. The multiple textures and colors were a feast for the eyes

Sometimes the moss hung from tree limbs hanging over ferns and moss. The varied textures almost overloaded my senses – and sometimes they were spooky.
