I Love MOSS by alexandre-deschaumes I Love MOSS by alexandre-deschaumes
Hello :bounce:

I'm just back from a magical road trip through USA including Minnesota , South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Washington .. Pacific Ocean ! and Olympic National Park

I was with my friend and very very talented photographer & writer Ashley [ [link] ] You should check her work with faeriland , it's poetry.

In Olympic NP we have been hosted by [link] ( we met here in DA ) ! He was our guide , he showed us all the wonders in this magnificient area .. So , Tim , I want to THANK YOU again and again . Amazing kindness . I am very very grateful

hopefully maybe I organize a workshop in this part of the world one day .. this is a perfect place for it . Deep and strange forests , Epic ocean coastline , mountains, animals..

Here I am , on this picture, sitting in a dream tree , near Lake crescent . in Olympic . A dreamworld for me , full of incredible MOSS, huge trees from another world , and FOG.

I have now two workshops in the Alps and then , Iceland ( 20-29 June ) So , very busy , but I hope to work on some pictures of this trip soon .

thank you very much for everything.

I Love MOSS by *autumn-ethereal
CATEGORY: deviantART-related/deviantID
The suggester says of this amazing devID, "What a fantastic way to pose for a deviantID - this incredible mossy tree seems almost like a scene from Jack and the Beanstalk or some other fairytale!" ( Suggested by GraphiteColours and Featured by WDWParksGal )
I like the position he sits in.I kinda wish he was more relaxed.the angle you took the picture from Is great.The tree is a very beautiful scenery,the light illuminates beautifully,the color is vibrant.I personally love tall trees.I have to say I have seen a lot of tree climbing pictures but none nearly as great as this one,this one stand out to me.The fact that he's barefoot is nice to me shows a true nature lover.The moss,the trees shape is really different. honestly I can't find anything I really don't like about the photo.I think over all it's a great photograph! : )

I lived in Washington, and Olympic NP was my neighbor. I could see the Olympic mountains from my house. There are a lot of photos of this park in all of it's glory, with the mountains, trees and lakes, but this photo stands out above the rest, giving a unique perspective and an esoteric insight into the majesty and mystique of the land.
I feel this photo captures this essence of this forest and this land, and I have spent a lot of time there, especially around Crescent Lake. The green mossy branches reach from the ground into heaven above, and his presence adds the perspective of how small man is in nature and in scale to this great forest with its enormous mountains, trees and glacial lakes.

That is near my favorite place on the entire earth, the Hoh Rainforest. I drive by lake Crescent every few years or so, since I was a child. It's about a 3 day drive from Oklahoma City. I loved this pic for reminding me of that area, funny enough it actually is from that area. :)

i love these kind of tree. very bold and tall!
EphyLiami Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
To say that this photo is incredible - is to say nothing.
Because for me - that's the perfect place, really.^.^
Why: 'cause there's the magic huge trees(that is truly awesome), wild animals... fog and MOSS.
(And no human of course)

An amazing and mysterious forest indeed.
It feels like in the other world there,I suppose...:iconawwloveplz:
Thank u for this atmosphere art :icongromp:

Ouahou ! quels arbres superbes ! avec toute cette mousse, la balade a dû être absolument magnifique. Surtout si elle est dans ce genre tout du long. Quelle chance tu as de t'être promené sous et sur ces beautés ! *_*
De plus l'angle de vue est du meilleur effet. C'est une DD amplement méritée, et merci à elle d'avoir mis ton boulot en vedette =D

Splendide cet arbre de mousse ! Tu parais si petit dans ce dédale de branches tortueuses :faint: Ce doit être drôlement dépaysant comme endroit ! Votre voyage a duré longtemps !? J'imagine que tu ne dois pas avoir beaucoup de temps pour traiter et montrer tes photos avec ce printemps par monts et par vaux :aww: J'ai hâte de découvrir la suite ;-)
