Here is my entry for Jez Braithwaite’s Reflections #4 and Water Water Everywhere #77 challenges.
All of the photographs on this post were taken on a foggy February morning in the year 2020. Recently re-discovered, I felt certain that they’d make a good show for Jez Braithwaite’s Reflections and Water Water Everywhere challenges.
This is just one of a whole series of photographs that I took yesterday at one of my favorite haunts, Weems Creek. I didn’t even know about the new challenge, Reflections, or that it was incorporated into the Water Water Everywhere Challenge, both hosted by Jez Braithwaite who is a great photographer.
Here are a couple of submissions to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere challenge.
I’m a big fan of early lifeforms such as mosses and lichens (pronounced liken.)
Let’s take a closer look. Mosses, much like plankton (the earliest form of plant life) are highly dependent on an immediate supply of water.
Here we have some pretty pink buds alongside another, hardier moss.
Next we have lichens which are a beautiful example of symbiosis between algae (or cyanobacteria) living among filaments of multiple fungi species. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. Wikipedia
