The Red Planet

I thought this might interest some of my readers. These rocks can be found in the NZ high-country. These rocks are covered in a tiny red plant. A little bit like the red weed in the movie War of the Worlds. I believe this plant is either a lichen or algae. Anyway it makes quite an impact on the otherwise fairly drab colours of the river flats.
