ABC Wednesday - V is for Veins

V is for Veins in a Rock.............

veins of granite and quartz running through a rock

Texture images always go over pretty well for stock photographers.

Textures are everywhere when you take a minute to look a bit closer at just about everything.

I have found that nature offers the most unique and vast selections and she proudly displays them for us all to see.

The above macro of a rock along the ocean has a great texture as well a beautiful design that was created centuries ago when they were all molten.

There are veins of quartz and granite running through this massive boulder - some of them are quite fine and intricate.

Only nature offers these kinds of textures and I am glad she shares them with us.

If you click on the photo, it will enlarge the image to show even more details of the veins.

This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
