Thatís a nice big tree to have in your front yard. I love oak trees, but Maples are my favorite, and not just in the fall when they are changing colors. If I were 10 there would certainly be a tree house in this photo.

good shot of this Lichen tree with the excellent POV
to show us the tree's big branchs like a V of Valentine's day,
the V is the bottom part of an heart (of love) graphic too, TFS

Thank you very much and a Happy Valentine's Day to you too. A good dedication for Ulla. What a pity I use to buy these lichens as moss sticks (sticks 4 ft thickness 5 inches) from market at Rs. 90/- (A little more than USD 2) for my orchids, when it is abundant in plenty on trees there. A good capture and well composed. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Great shot and composition - this is V short - I am off again! ;)
I haven't seen a big Maple tree in years! I didn't know a thing about lichens until Ulla. Good dedication to her and a wonderful shot.

happy valentines day,
ulla will be pleased to see this capture of lichen dedicated to her,i liked the natural colours and the details captured, well composed shot,
i have been a bit irregular here as i do not have much to post and i dont want using archives only for the postings, i am not shooting much in this year 2008 and most of the time my camera is at rest,its due to lack of opportunities to shoot or may be a bit of lack of time and above all my being a lazy guy as i feel that no one is busy enough to avoid his/her passion or hobby.
this sunday i will surely try to go for a shoot,
i still manage by looking at the gallery and writing some odd critiques and enjoy the work of my fellow tn members,

There is indeed a multitude of Lichen growing on this strong specimen of a Maple Tree. Odd color combination between the tree and the Lichen...

I'm really flattered by this dedication on Valentine's Day and impressed by your effort to find me some lichens!! (I'm still around, just too much to do at times!!)
This is fine capture of this huge Maple that seems to be covered by a blanket of yellow lichens while I'm sure there are many other species there too. You'll have to get a magnifying glass out and study them closer when the snow is gone! :-) It is a fascinating micro world! I look forward to your further research on the healing aspects!
Many thanks and take care! Ulla
Nice lichen covered tree Bob! :-)
I've been taking loads of lichen photos recently which are inspired by Ulla!
Great detail and clarity.
Nice colours as well.
Very well done!

I must say that Billy is right ---I would love a tree house in that big beautiful tree...well, would have at that time. A 41 year old woman sitting in a treehouse would probably draw a crowd today. ha ha But sure would be funny.

I can tell you that Ulla was pleased to have this dedication: she has always been fascinated by lichens and has gone more deeply into the subject since joining TN. I have learnt a little too and know that many lichens that grow on the trees are specific to the species of tree, so these can be specific to Maple, possibly as you say, owing to the syrup that oozes out.
Interesting to see the different shades of greens, yellows and orange portrayed by this fine shot.

This is a superb picture, Bob, with details and fantastic colours once more plus your technical skills being very useful in the case of this picture: great. At first, my eye was very freudian and I still cannot help it... made me smile, added to the title ;-))) I don't know why, maybe I should go back in analysis! Outside what I see, I can hardly make an inspired comment because every time I come back to the picture, here it is again... ho! Sorry Bob, cause it's a real nice picture!
