Photography Competition winner for November

Mossy tree stump, image: Darren Towers

Another month of incredible photos, but after much deliberation we picked this mossy tree stump by Darren Towers. The stump is near Loch Ness, Scotland Darren says: "I thought this looked like a cheeky forest creature with a full head of mossy hair and a subtle face staring out at visitors in the woods!"

The CJS Team agreed with him with Carla saying "When I glanced at it I saw a ‘little bears face’ in the middle and now I can’t not see it!!"

We liked the vibrant colours, the myriad of greens working together to keep it a cool, calm image with great depth.  

Darren has won a year's membership to the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland.
