Photo of the Week: May 4-10, 2015

The green moss, lichen and long curve of this oak tree are illuminated in this wide angle photo taken in Carteret County.
“While walking the banks of the White Oak River in Swansboro,” writes photographer Jim Snyders, “I noticed green moss growing on the exposed roots of this very old oak tree. Seeing the river in the background I then incorporated a few tree limbs and added a little fill flash to accentuate the lichen and green moss. Since the White Oak River plays such a vital roll in our ecology I thought this landscape would be fitting for this contest.”
