I suppose the conditions in these Welsh hills are not dissimilar - thickly wooded, damp and humid - ideal for moss, lichen etc. The colours are pretty intense everywhere.

There’s a map showing where they all are. They require a certain range of temperature and a certain amount of annual rainfall. Most of them are either in the SW, NW or West Wales. There’s quite a bit down here and it’s easy to take it for granted.

Could be worth investing in a UV torch to see some of this

A friend is currently having treatment for cancer. After a fairly recent chat she said she liked my simple, more timeless photos, so I promised I’d try and take one for her.
This is Ditchling Becon dew pond, on the South Downs. I knew it would be foggy at 7am, but the rain was predicted to stop. It didn’t. I got soaked and muddy and now have a sore back after my trip up and down the beacon!

It may be a shit phone, but it’s captured 2 great images. :ok_hand:

Sometimes, made-up rules (of thirds, particularly) are absolute bollocks and made to be broken - spectacularly in this case. :+1::heart_eyes:

Edit: apart from the tree😉
