A Lichen a Day — 2 December 2020

A lichen a day keeps depression at bay…

Having slept better last night and having words churning in my head, I’m trying to be in a better mood today (I still have plenty to grump about but trying not to let that have space in my head). So I want to spread some joy to both my moss and lichen loving friends, by giving you both in one shot.

Took this one in the backyard on the south-facing side of pine tree. The tree is on the north edge of a little swath of woods between our place and the neighbor’s house.

  • Shot taken 16 November 2020
  • Device: DSC-HX400V
  • 1/50 sec. f 4
  • focal length 12mm

Once again an unedited shot direct from the camera. I am trying to get better at framing them nicely and stuff directly, although doing macro work I find I have to use center focus to have enough control over what the autofocus chooses. I have a lot of eye issues related to the severity of my migraines anymore so I can’t actually trust my eyeballs to do decent manual focus.

So what do you think–are they warring for dominance or happily coexisting?
