Earth Nerve Net pt8 [Caloplaca* Marina]

I’ve always found earth patterns fascinating.
Sometimes random, other times symmetrical, other abstract…

Yellow cracks

Yellow formations

on rocks,

Orange Sea Lichen

their name:

Caloplaca* Marina

[no wonder I was attracted to them!]

…with woody friends

…and an anchor

Caloplaca [Greek origin word : Calo & plaka] means ‘beautiful patches’, and I couldn’t agree more!


Enjoy a beautiful Sunday and week ahead everyone.

Remember beauty is everywhere when you keep your eyes and mind open.


…accompanied by


Ground Luminosity

  1. These are lovely, Marina! Beautiful patches in the sea, indeed. I’m glad someone else put forth the obvious pun in English. I was so tempted… 🙂 Hugs to you this week and always!!

    • Is tempting!!!! 😉🤣
      Thank you, my dear Mary Jo, so glad you enjoyed them.
      Hope you’re having a wonderful week (my, Wednesday already!)
      Many hugs to you! 🤗😘

  2. Just very beautiful.You’d think it would discourage an artist like yourself to pick up her brush. Nature cannot be surpassed, so why try? But no. We are inspired by nature to further create.

  3. I love the vibrant oranges and yellows, Marina, and then the textures add another different kind of beauty. Great photos! 🧡🧡🧡🧡

  4. Like you, I’m fond of making abstract portraits of lichens. One good thing about them is that they exist almost everywhere; I’ve photographed them as close to home as half a mile and as far away as New Zealand.

  5. Beautiful photos. I love lichen. Lichen produces cool abstractions like you have captured here.

  6. Listening to Ground Luminosity. It’s definitely an Earth Nerve Net sound and feel.
    It’s amazing how you spot these veins and arteries of earth. This one, especially in the second shot, is also very Paths of Colour! Amazing, Marina!
    Pets for Hera!
