Abstract natural patterns and textures: yellow-green lichen growing on the trunk of a very tall palm tree (possibly a Queen Palm) in Hilltop Park, Signal Hill, California. I spent an afternoon shooting macro photos of palm tree bark, all because of an RB group challenge. Group challenges can be good for your photography, making you try new subjects! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/100 sec, ISO 250, late afternoon sun, handheld)
