When I told Bob Ford about this project and my interest in lichens and asked for some advice on macrophotography, he generously offered to make it the subject of his next Portland walk. These happen more or less every Friday starting from The Heights Hotel at 10am, and Bob generously shares his extensive knowledge and observational skills. Sightings and photos are recorded on his Dorset Walks blog – scroll to Friday August 3rd at Kingbarrow Quarry for the ‘our’ walk.
The large depth of field needed for the shot below is achieved as a composite photo using photoshop. I very much hope we will be able to collaborate more as this project progresses.
