"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

“La Presa” – Ancient Landscapes Series / Brazil Agate Rock

This is another image created from a cut slab of Brazil Agate rock.
I like the barren landscape feel and the look of a approaching storm.
This rock had a ever so slight hint of cyan/blue within, so I removed that color in Photoshop.

  4. Really superb. It really is amazing what one can see when looking at these rocks. An approaching storm really hits the nail on the head for me. The stones really do give interesting Rorschach tests.

  7. As a lover of natural gems, I’ve always adored the Agates. I’m partial to the Dendritic (Greek..tree-like)Agates and their appearance of winter scenes. Beautiful image here, Michael.
