Startling orange lichen

Startling orange lichen 

Late July, early august and this vibrant orange lichen totally dominates the granite coast. Mainly found nearer the top of cliffs, a little above the saltwater splash zone anyway. And yet the rock samphire, also seen here in mid shot, grows close to the shoreline as it loves salt. This must be Geoff Boycott's 'corridor of uncertainty' but in the biological, rather than cricketing, sphere.
Oh dear, must be time for me to go to bed!

What a stunning colour..............it almost hurts my eyes! I've never seen anything like it.

Beautifully captured though, at the lichen contrasts nicely with the colour of the sea.

Yes. And there will be many more. I long ago finished posting all my more recent shots of Cornwall (2014 and later). But I still have a few 2011 / 2012 left. I will ration them though; maybe only 3-4 a page.
