A black crack running through orange-lichened cement.
Time and lichen vs. cement: who will win?

This crack appears in a large slab of cement on the shores of Seneca Lake -- once used for water by the old Seneca Mine up in Keweenaw County. The cement slab looks like the roof to a small building, but the huge roof has long since crushed the building under it, and now it lies on the ground. Time, lichen, and weather have taken their toll, and this crack is the result.
