Default The Beauty of Decay

One of the marvels of logic is that the eating away of a former entity can be so electrifyingly beautiful.

Nice pics, jack. I've tried to capture that essence before but seem to come up just short.
I've often looked at a moss covered stump in the forest and noted how it looks like a craggy, tree covered island. I suppose that to the micro-creatures of the forest, it may be much the same thing.

How cool! Your comment will come to mind from now on when I spot one of these "craggy,'tree' covered islands".

It also reminds me of how mosses are used in bonsai.

Yes, great idea for a thread.
