Mossy trees

never seen such mossy trees before. and they are everywhere along the coast in oregon/washington. as you can see, some trees are entirely covered in moss, every single branch. i can only think "enchanted forest".... its really like a fairy tale!! moss needs a cool, damp, cloudy area (not too much sun) to thrive, and well yes, we saw how damp, cool and cloudy it can be around here. but next thing you know, its suddenly sunny again..
we saw quite some trees like this already, but photographing them is another story. too green, not green enough, not the entire tree. etc etc... so i have a collection by now, zoomed out, zoomed in, different settings. but seeing them for real is just the best!!

What a beautiful photo. It has been to wet there. Will the trees still have leaves as well?

Great shot! This looks like "out west" in the rainforests of Western Washington. They get over 125 inches of rain each year.
