Textures

Re-occurring textures in nature...

You might almost think the image above was some sort of high tech image of the left and right hemispheres of a brain with all its organic whorls and furrows.

The left half of the photo shows a cross-section of an Oregon seaside cliff that was revealed when part of the cliff gave way. It shows the enormous pressures that the layers of rock have been subjected to over a geologic time scale.

The right half is the texture of a weathered and sun bleached tree trunk flung up on a Vancouver Island beach. It too was formed over a long time scale as well though nowhere near as long as the rock formation.
