Lichen lace

Lichen pinecone lacey bumps

I found this pine cone while walking around Taupiro Point in Katikati.  It caught my attention in under the pines, bright, dry and lacey I just couldn’t pass it by.

So beautiful, and it absorbs me, lichen gently covering the bumps and curves, in some places more than one layer of lichen. The light in this photo is quite warm too.

It has faded from a cool blue grey colour to mostly bone white, being left near a window in our workshop.
