I like lichen too, I have taken a few photos of it lately but haven't posted any yet. The lichen here goes so well with the rust.

I wonder what dictates the colour of lichens. Am ashamed to say I know nothing about them...yet!

@s4sayer

I know not about the colour but there are 3 levels of lichen, this flat one being the first and the third is bushy lichen, very photogenic, and indicates the cleanest air. I learnt all this on 365 once from another member when I posted a shot of lichen http://365project.org/quietpurplehaze/365/2014-02-27

@phil_howcroft

Thank you, Phil. I experimented with the Picture Effect on the a6000 for this, using Clear instead of my usual Standard.

TY Hazel, my knowledge of lichens has increased exponentially!

Amazing things, lichens. Love the contrast between the living and non living textures and the shallow DOF is perfect
