A photo taken from the Kepler Track, near Lake Manapouri in Fiordland National Park. It shows the wonderful green carpet of moss and lichen that covers just about everything in the rainforest. The parts of the ground not covered by moss are covered by small brown beech tree leaves.

Stunning, beautiful landscape. For me the decaying foreground log and the leaning tree in the distance are the key elements that make this photograph work so well. I'm not so sure about the frame! By the way, right-clicking doesn't seem to work with Internet Explorer.

Wonderful image of a rainforest. Excellent details captured of the ground and trunks covered by moss. And what an amazing light-management! Colors and sharpness superb.
Thanks for sharing such a spectacular shot.

Hello Vincent- I love woodland and this shot is like a dream to me. The light, the variety of greens and the contrasting russets are simply fantastic. An image I can lose myself in. Top shot! Warm regards Rosemary

This is like a shot from an animated film. The colours are quite iridescent and seem to suggest a magical quality.
The whole scene is carpeted in rich textures of reddy brown and lime greens.
The first tree stands guard and, with the help of the fallen log, directs the pathway.
My warm regards,

it`s far from easy to gain the nice sense of depth that you have gained in this attractive shot.
Your well chosen view point and imaginative exposure settings have produced a fine photograph.
Very nicely done, Les.

A truly fabulous composition, nature in all its fullness, wonderful these varying shades of green that seems to cover almost everything, I love the light that filters through the large trees.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Very well done. I love it.
Enjoy a good day.

This looks like a magical place. I can almost smell the woodsy scent, and I like the earthy, natural colors. The bit of sunlight that is filtering in is also very nice.

This is wonderful, just expecting the Hogwarts to jump in to the scene at any time.
Love all the variations of greens. Super light, well managed and presented.

Great title for this beautiful photo, one that brings back great memories: I did the Kepler Track in 2003. I love the soft textures, the play of light and shade and of course the deep cool green shades. It evokes such a wonderful mood of peace and solitude. The subtle black and green frame is not overpowering, but personally I feel that the photo is more than beautiful enough to stand on its own without a frame.

This is another spectacular shot from NZ, and very similar to a scene we saw on a safari to the site where "Lord of the Rings" was filmed, indeed, a carpet of moss. It's a pleasure to see your photos from New Zealand.
