Photo of the Day (3-25-09)

This lushness of green is along the trek to Montezuma Falls in Tasmania. When crafterm was on his two-hour hike, these ferns towered above him, the tips of the fronds sometimes just above his head. The way he describes it, this trip was as stunning as it looks here. The way the textures pop out against the background is alluring.

Notice the black bug. In still-paintings of food and flowers, a bug can be a symbol of transience–sort of the idea that nothing is permanent, even beauty. One hopes that this gorgeous hiking trail stays that way.

If you have a stunning photo to share–one that gives us pause, send it our way at Gadling’s Flickr Photo Pool. It might be chosen as a Photo of the Day.
