I’ve always been fascinated with Lichen. Those dusty colours and frilly textures are very appealing to me. I had to go back into the archives for these shots.

…..this week’s WPC is monochromatic
…..I’ve always been fascinated by this composite organism
Lichen is a dual organism composed of fungi living in close association with green algae. It appears as a thin crust on bark and rocks and grows extremely slowly. Some grow as slowly as 0.01 mm per year in arctic regions and in more temperate climates it might grow 5 to 8 mm per year. Lichen can live for thousands of years.
At my cottage, up in the Georgian Bay area, lichen appears mostly on the bark of trees. I love photographing it up close.
….Becca Givens needs some participants for this challenge
Luckily I love trees and I love photographing them. Here’s my contribution to Sunday Trees. If you want to join just post a picture of your favourite tree every Sunday and ping back to Becca Givens over at On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea.
…..it’s no secret I love texture
Nature has an abundance of beautiful textures. Here are a few of my favourite subjects to photograph because of their textural surfaces.
