ABC Wednesday - Parched Mud




P is for Parched Mud .......




curling dried parched mud layer



This dried up, curling layer of mud made for a unique texture image.

It was odd that just the top layer was affected, as the sandy dirt under it was not disturbed.

Soon after I snapped this shot, this little spot was walked upon by many pairs of boots, and very little of the parched layer remained.

  11. That is so unusual. I would never have guessed what that was without your title. Glad you were able to get a shot before it was destroyed.

  13. Kathy, I guess this was on a lake shore where mud washed up over the sand?

    It's a great textural capture! We're on the same wave-length about texture!

  15. So sorry for being late to visit you, I am playing catch up after a few days out on the motorbike.

    Loved the texture of this photograph. We were watching TV programme of a family who built their own home out of clay, so natural.
