    An old log that has gone to the moss and lichens. Let us have a closer look.

    With each picture the old log got more and more interesting. Isn't it amazing how something that's dead and decaying can have so much life and colour? I love the last picture and will take more notice of dead trees from now on. :headbang:

    @Kildale to me they look like small miniature landscapes and the texture mix looks lovely.

    Thank you for the comments. It's like Gulliver's world if you get in close.
