Abstract Nature

One of the most wonderfully abstract and textured things in nature happens to be bark. Rocks and snow are also up there in my book. Thankfully, we don’t have any snow yet. It’s pretty, but I’m not ready for it. I put a black and white layer on all the shots in Photoshop, then I tinted them to further remove them from normality. I don’t really want them to look like bark. The focus is supposed to be on the shape, texture, and tone.

 

 

 

This last oneĀ isn’t very abstract, but it was too interesting to pass up: a naturally occurring number 11.

I’m hoping to go for a long walk in the woods, weather permitting, of course. If not, I may share some cloud shots.
