Weekly Photo Challenge: TEXTURES

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is TEXTURES.

I saw this old fence up in the mountains of North Carolina. I think it does a good job of demonstrating the different textures of three varieties of lichens against the warn patina of the weathered wood of the old fence.

  1. Beautiful. Cladonia cristatella with the red caps is commonly called British Soldier Lichen, for the color worn by invading troops during the American Revolution. The caps are actually the sexually fruiting structure of the lichen. (Maybe one of three facts I remember from the SC Master Naturalist course, ha!)

    I’ve never seen such gorgeous lichen. I love to photograph lichen but I’ve never seen these varieties before.

  8. I can confirm that the old fence does a good job in demonstrating and a young mad like you did did an excellent job in capturing. Nice one John
