Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Lichen makes the day better.

A beautiful lichen grows on a tree.  Like so many areas in Japan, nature fights for a precarious balance with civilization.  Everywhere there is moss and growth.

Ivy clings tenaciously to a tree growing through a roadside park.

Layers give depth to a photo.  They can direct the eye.  They can frame a composition.  The colorful fallen leaves and robust ivy offer contrast.

I want to eat it.

 Tree, moss, ivy, and fallen leaves glistening from an autumn rain.
