Climbing a hill this afternoon and stumbled on some rather handsome lichen covered rocks

Amazing boulders. Looks like some giant just placed them in the middle of nowhere. It doesn't look like they had fallen from somewhere higher...

Looks like you've got lots of great places to walk (lugging a small NEX camera has to make a good difference in an uphill climb like that!).

Thx. Size does make hiking, photo walks easier. I did notice a spot on the sensor on my 7, despite trying to be careful switching lens. NZ has some world class photo environs, and soon you will have Trey Ratcliff as a resident.

Very interesting color on the lichen. Most of it around here is a greyish-green color. Lots to like in these, the boulders in relation to their surroundings & that sky is great. Nicely done!

I really like the composition on the second photo. The boulder has a shape strangely reminiscent of the Easter Island heads - as if it has fallen over!

Strong colours and the sky is great. Presumably, the polarizer helped.

Thanks for sharing,
Paul

Some nice shots. I have taken my NEX on a few hikes as well and the size is great for taking it with you without burden.
