Patrick- Good morning my friend. Hope all is going well for you today. I'm actually not that familiar with lichen. Probably have seen it a thousand times and paid a never mind to it.
Brilliant work with your trademark textures which really what this photo is all about. The other thing it is about is the amazing colors that pop. So vibrant. Lighting is excellent, Clarity, so clear and sharp.
Sensational work.
Have a great day, take care, enjoy #5885295
