Yellow lichens on rock for Mellow Yellow Monday

I came upon this rock yesterday along the breakwater at St. Andrews and thought the yellow lichens that were growing on it were so pretty and vibrant in colour I decided to take a picture of it.

This is beautiful. Isn't it wonderful to come upon such things when you don't expect them?

That's a beautiful yellow--almost like marigold color. Nice!

Slow-growing lichen on age-old rocks: it doesn't get more mellow than that!

I love photographing Lichen as well. I've never seen yellow lichen before- great job spotting it and photographing it! Lichen is so easy to overlook.
