Life & The Pulse: A Time of Low Light

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.” Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

photography-moss-nature-northside-swittersbWell, generally speaking moss is on the North side of trees, if you live in the Northern hemisphere. But, in the Southern hemisphere, moss can be mostly on the South side of the tree. Moisture content, sunlight, evaporation all contribute to where moss grows and to what degree. On this old, gnarly tree, the moss was decidedly on the North side of the tree (in Oregon). (more here about moss)

Nature & Fungi: Stairway to Demise

photography-bracket fungi-conks-nature-trees-swittersbBracket Fungi (also known as Shelf Fungi) are unique and add beauty to the image. Unfortunately they are most often a sign of poor health or death for a tree. Often found in wetlands, they feed off the host tree and actually can display rings of growth similar to a tree.
