[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another indicator of a snag that's been around awhile is finding lichen growing on it. I find old weathered dry wood quite fascinating due to the acentuated grain features that seem to come out as the wood cures. I have a few almost psychadelic looking examples of this, which I may post over the next couple of days.
I'm about to head up for 2 weeks to go backpacking into northern BC on Thursday so I won't be on the board for awhile after that.

Great texture and detail Tim!
Nice lighting and camera angle.
Strong composition!


Great flowing lines and curves. Very poetic...artistic...interesting.

Have fun on your trip! I'm sure you will. And I look forward to your photos when you return.

So that's what this is. I have long wondered...so long that I just accepted and stopped wondering. Lichen never even came to mind. It is a sub group of which I am very ill informed. You have enlightened me! I think I shall spend my day studying this "creature". Thanks and nice patterns as well..
