    I was out taking a walk through Healey Dell yesterday with a camera and found this Birch Polypore growing on the side of a birch tree that had been snapped off during some high winds. The thing that I like so much about this photo is it's "simplicity" and the variations of colours of the moss, the fungi and the grain of the wood. I would of course welcome your thoughts.

    I agree it is an amazing variation! it must be a wet location to get that much moss on the tree.

    Yes, after all in it's Lancashire!;)
    The tree was growing quite a height (About 40-50 feet) above the small river (Pictured below - This photo was also taken yesterday) Autumn-Waterfall.jpg that runs through Healey Dell.

    I looked it up. Healey Dell looks like an interesting place.

    If ever you are in this area (Near to Rochdale) with a camera and have some time to spare Healey Dell is well worth a visit.
