On the surface of things

The rocks around the coast of Freycinet have a golden cast to them, and when you add a icing of lichen you get some remarkable colours.

I suppose, this is another of my micro-landscapes.

A beautiful macro. And a very creative idea. I never think of anything but flowers for the macro memes. I need to get outside my comfort zone more.
