#8: granite, gneiss and lichen

the beautiful, powerful, ancient rocks upon which stockholm and its environs are built are roughly 2 billion years old, carved into their present incarnation by the violence of glaciers and time.  they are primarily comprised of granite and gneiss, and are the perfect habitat for a variety of lichens.  i could spend weeks doing nothing but photographing these rocks and the organic growth upon them, thus my #8 to-be-missed thing about sweden is granite, gneiss and lichen.
