Lichen on the rocks

I was attracted by the rich colours and fascinating textures of this patch of lichen on a granite outcrop.  There is a hint of a strange landscape, perhaps on another planet!

Lichen

As moths are attracted to a lamp in the evening, so photographers are often attracted to lichen.  Why, then, another lichen photo?  Simply because I like it  –  and I offer no apology!  I am fascinated by the shapes, the colours, the mosaic-like natural patterning, the textures etc.  It is just a very pleasing subject.

Bark pattern

I shot this photo because I liked so much the textures and pattern, but I would love to be able to name the component elements, such as the types of lichen, the black dots, the pale grey etc.
