“Bark and Lichen”
Texture is the most enduring and ubiquitous underpinning of form… certainly a calming, meditative and appealing world for both the eye and mind.
– Lynda Lehmann
Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 15 of 2017.
It’s a very simple composition, a dead branch next to the trail, some of the bark already shed, revealing yet more texture in the wood below. There’s also a bit of lichen growing on the remaining pieces of bark to add a small splash of colour.
I’m finding myself continually drawn to these forms, they are an interesting testament to the cycle of life in the forest, changing from one form to the next. Now that I have a good macro lens, I’m able to document these forms more effectively and enjoy them even more.
