    Ancient Forest

    Dating back to the beginning of the Mesozoic age trees that belong to the genus Araucaria are often referred to as living fossils. Their massive trunks can easily reach heights of 60 or more metres and the trees often emerge from the canopy beneath them. Reaching above the canopy their whorled branches are often a distinguishing feature in the areas that they grow. Although the species belonging to this genus are relatively widespread their local distribution is often restricted. I like this photo because although it was taken in the highlands of Papua New Guinea it is reminiscent of similar scenes that can be seen in my home area of South-eastern Queensland.



    Cheers,
    Craig

    Really nice image, the mist certainly adds a mysterious feel to it.

    Okay, so how do you make "glow in the dark" fungi?

    Thank you. I think the image might have been a bit more boring without the mist.

    LOL. They glow by themselves. To see it you just have to make sure there is no light around

    I really like this photo. I can just imagine a gentle brontosaurus popping its head up from a feed there.
