Lichens are one of the most beautiful flora nature has to offer. They're like alien landscapes in miniature. And the sheer variety of shapes, colors, and textures is enough to keep a photographer busy for quite a while!

Lichens are most often found on trees (living or dead) or rocks in damp areas. They can often be found near the shoreline of oceans or lakes, as well as in the forest, in cemeteries (on gravestones) and pretty much anywhere else it's cool and damp. Whether you take photos of lichens from a distance or close-up, they're a varied and interesting subject.

Below are sixty lichen photos to give you an idea of the varieties available. Feel free to share your favorites or other lichen photos in the comments.
