Lichen grows on any side of the post it feels like...

None of this silly growing only on the south side business ;-)

There's something about rural fences that compel one to shoot them.

    Great shot David.
    I agree, there is something about a country fence, especially with some great DOF thrown in.

    its obviously rebel lichen, breaking the rules and all that.
    I agree about fences, btw :-)

    Thanks, yeah I tend to shoot them when I spot them ;-)
    Thanks Kat. Looks ok in colour too, but b&w drew more attention to the form.
    Antipodean Lichen :)

    I thought moss only grew on the north side not the south. Oh wait. I bet that is only true in the northern hemisphere, right? LOL! Well shot David. Great DoF. And nice contrast with the black and white! Works very well, showing off the detail of the wood grain.

    Yeah I think that may be a Northern Hemisphere thing :P

    You're so right about fence posts.
