Flower and lichen

Post by rjlittlefield »

Must be lichen week!


Nothing special here -- I just liked the colors and textures.

Field is about 1-1/2 inches across.

This is another from my Conrad Basin series, shot a couple of weeks ago (July 15) at ~6200 ft elevation.


Canon 300D, Sigma 105mm macro, handheld, natural light.

Beautiful composition and makes for a nice "little" landscape image. Nice textures and color combinations.

A nice photo there Rik. :D I am no expert on these things but the lichen could be Rhizocarpon geographicum or in laymans terms a "Map Lichen." :)
