Rock on wood

(005:  Rock on wood.  Photo © 2009 by Robin)

I was walking by the stumps of the elm trees that we had cut down not too long ago.  I saw this rock sitting on one of them and liked the texture and contrasts between them.  You can even see the cuts in the wood from the saw.

I do wonder, though, how the rock got there.

The music.  Or there’s always this one.

    I like it too. You took a really simple subject, but it has a lot of story in it. The way the texture showed so clearly when the colors almost seem hazy, I don’t even know what’s so interesting about this, but it is. The very shape of the rock wants to talk.

    The dichotomy between the colors and the texture probably have something to do with the playing around I did in Photoshop (which I now have back…yay!).

    If rocks could talk, I’d be very entertained while out in my garden. I think I grow more rocks than vegetables. 😉

    Hey, that is really neat! The rock, somehow, found its way upon the stump. We have an elm tree stump, and I am trying to figure out what to do with it. Rocks, I do love rocks. Perhaps rocks will decorate the stump and make it happy. Your rock looks like a happy rock.

    By the way, and I don’t know if you are into ‘nature that speaks’ but I had checked out a new book at the library about such things. Very interesting reading if you are into listening to nature speak. The book: Voices of the Earth–The Path of Green Spirituality by Clea Danaan.
