"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

Agate Rock – “Ancient Landscapes” Series

This is another image from the “Ancient Landscapes” Series.
There are so many different views, different angles, various textures and colors that one can find in many of the cut slabs of rock, and it is always a very high type of intrigue to the mind when viewing these with the macro lens.
It is something that lets the imagination to simply run wild!
In this piece, I sort of like those little strands or black streaks in the middle and at the bottom.
They remind me of some silhouetted plants or foliage coming up from the bottom.
