Hello Brendan ….
Such a lovely photo of a beautiful scene .. you can almost hear that rushing water.It does seem an enchanted spot.
The red rock is interesting .. I haven’t seen anything quite like that and I love the contrasting delicacy and fresh colour of the fern fronds.
Hello Marya … thank you very much. Yes, it’s a beautiful place.
On his Flickr site Sean captioned one photo ‘The blood red rock of the Fairy Glen’. Perhaps a lichen?
Yes, or perhaps algae .. it appears slimy or that lovely word mucilaginous 🙂
Yes, a good word. 🙂
You’re right … much more likely to be algae.
Hello Brendano and Marya. Yes, it is a beautiful photograph of a magical spot.
I wonder if the red deposit is to do with the iron in the water?
Hello Cymbeline … there are some others that I think are even better, but I can’t reproduce them at the moment because they are on a web page of Sean’s for which I don’t know the password. I am trying to get around this.
A quick Google seems to indicate that red algae may be a sign of unpolluted water in streams.
Good evening, Brendan .. a quick hello Cymbeline 🙂
Sean’s friends are still leaving messages on his Facebook page.

Good morning, Brendan ..
It must be a great comfort to you knowing what a loving and inspirational life Sean lived … such moving tributes from his many friends.
Good morning, Marya. You’re very kind, and yes, it is very gratifying to us to see how much Sean was, and is, loved. It makes a big difference.
Hello Brendan. I like the force of the gushing water in the background and the serenity of the fern in the foreground. As ever, Sean made a beautiful composition.
Hello Shermeen. Thank you very much – I like those aspects too.
