More pictures from my lichen spotting course C:
Check out the first part here -> https://mydreamrealities.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/lichen-spoting/
This picture was taken from Koli, a very famous place (at least in Finland), that has also been under conservation for a really long time. That makes it a great place to study lichens, since they grow really slowly.
Although we were supposed to focus on lichens, I found the mosses more interesting :D
A more unknown part of the Koli area is the nearby old-growth forest, which we also visited as a part of the course. The picture above is an other happy accident. I was trying to take a picture of the underside of a polypore but because I couldn’t look through the viewer I didn’t notice that the picture was only focused right at the bottom and that the sunlight was reflecting from the lens :D None the less I really like this picture. It’s not realistic at all but it sure is interesting.
A dream quote for today: “Sometimes the dreams that come true are the one’s you never even knew you had” <3
The final part of the series coming soon ^^
