Playing with the light and Lichens on a Oak tree.
I had not expected to do another post before Christmas, but this morning I got the chance to go out with my camera.
A colder morning than we've have had in the past week, arrived at High Royds just in time to see the mist rising from the ground as the sun broke through. The light was stunning through the mist, and the contrast of the bright red Rose-hips was lovely.
I had gone looking for birds, but it was a little quiet this morning, mainly Blackbirds picking out the last of the berries . Over the past few weeks Redwings have been feeding their way through the trees.
Next to the wood there is a field that has some very old Oak trees in , and on closer inspection I notice all the different kinds of Lichen growing on the branches, beautiful creations but yet another complicated subject in nature to master.
I have put the Lichens on iSpot,
will come back and hopefully name them at some point.
