The patterns created by this assortment of lichens growing on granite rock attracted my attention. Photographed on the east coast of Tasmania. (one for Mike Moats!!!)

Hey John, I love intimate images like this that most people walk right by unnoticed. Nice details, color, and design.

Beautiful lichen. Agree with all the previous comments but find too much contrast in this image.

Nice catch - I really like the circular patterns you captured.
