A pictorial survey of Lichen growing in the arid regions of Oregon and Washington within the Columbia River basin. Close-up style photography emphasizes the rich diversity in colors, textures, designs and details to be found on rock surfaces. Some photos reveal landscape views but most are an intimate sojourn with the the Lichen.
Backpacking and camping, kayaking and mountain climbing have allowed me to experience some of nature at it's best. More recently, my photography has moved to the details that form the foundation of the natural environment.
