Moss Island


Photo Information
I discovered this clump of moss in a pool of ice on our wheelie bin and it reminded me of a little island. I blurred the background slightly, cloned out the bits of grit and enhanced the colours.

Very simple but effective Ian. I can almost imagine those tall 'trees' folding down and Thunderbird 2 taking off into the pinky-blue yonder!

That's what photography is all about, identifying possibilities in the most obscure places. I love the treatment in this.
