The Challenge

In simple terms, we need to see a manmade path, bridge, stairs, or road that is surrounded or decorated with any or all of the following – ferns, mosses, lichens, liverworts, and algae. See Michael’s image for a great example:>)

Images must be accepted into the group in order to be eligible for the contest. If the image is not in the group, please be certain you post it before or when you enter it into the contest. I will check to be sure the image is in the group, and images not in the group will be removed.

I will also need to remove images that do not adhere to the guidelines. This is the only way to be fair.

All artistic media are welcome. Enter your favorite images; delight us with their beauty.
