06.02.2021-2 Quabbin Park Loop Road-Lichen on Rock

When I am walking along this road I often look at the “guard” rocks that keep us from driving onto the grounds and sometimes find interesting patterns which have been subjects of previous posts. I haven’t ID’d the lichen yet but this is more about Nature’s design.  Let your pareidolia run wild.  🙂

  2. Nice abstract! What do you mean by driving onto the grounds … someone’s property? Is it like a fence or even with the pavement?

    • The rocks line the road in different locations within the park, Denise. Kind of like guardrails, thus guard rocks. 🙂 Just something to keep us on the pavement as we drive through. There are other parts where we can park on the grass along the road but some places are less safe than others. Thanks!


  3. About a quarter of the way up from the middle of the bottom there seems to be a profile of a head looking toward the left.

  4. Yes, I think the head is W.C. Fields, holding a hand up to wipe under his nose

    The contrasting textures are especially appealing to me; the colors complement one another well, too.

    Ha, I see Robert’s WC Fields and I see a woman’s profile facing him looking right, in red. Fun, Steve, and well seen.

    There is beauty in thr infinite variety presented by the lowly plant lichen. Looking at the same collection of lichen on a rock I find something new in it every time I look.

  9. Lichens aren’t always easy as one might expect to photograph … yet you have done a really nice job here, Steve. It’s almost like a map.
