I photographed these lichen covered rocks when the tide was very high. Usually the sea doesn’t reach this high, but the lichen must be somewhat resistant to the saltwater to survive the waves.
I really love the texture and formations the lichen create on rocks.
For new readers: The foggy effect was created by using a 20 seconds long exposure of the moving water.
Check out this macro photo of a water drop with lichen as a background.
