Entwining rainforest moss, Fox Glacier viewpoint track, Westland National Park, South Island, New Zealand. Canon EOS 1DMKII, 90mm TSE with Sigma 58mm CU lens (for the 70-200 zooms), f9, 1.3 secs. Similar to the SE USA spanish moss, but with a greener and damper feel, this moss hangs and twines in the rainforest trees of western New Zealand. I had searched for a good image of these mosses for quite a few days and then found this staring me in the face. Actually getting the image in frame was a tricky affair, balancing the tripod on the forest floor at the right height and parallel position was no mean task. The breeze also spoilt some frames, but I eventually got this into the camera. I think this will be one of my more memorable shots from my wanderings in NZ, it brings back the feel of the rainforest for me.
