PPP is for Pretty Palm Patterns

In the wet subtropics palms thrive! Their tall straight trunks are the perfect host for lichens and mosses. I loved the beautiful patterns formed by palm trunks and their lichens, and tried to photograph many examples, all the while having to hurry to keep up with my partner, and cope with low-light conditions. Here are some of the results!Β Aren’t those mosses gorgeous?Β Stripes and patches…. and then there are the other patterns palms make with their fronds … and fruits

vines and canes climb the palms too …. and different palms make gracious patterns with their leaf and trunk angles …

Thanks to Frizz for prodding me to post a PPP story … pop over for a peek at the P’s πŸ™‚

  1. I love the way patterns are universal – when you look at these photos you can easily imagine them as something else – the palm fruits at beads or colourful dreadlocks, the fronds as feathers, the vines as criss crossed rope or slithering snakes πŸ™‚
