    Cactus Veins

    The soft tissue of a prickly pear leaf decomposed, leaving this woody skeleton. I think it looks best in B&W. In case you're wondering, this is not a macro shot; this shows most of the leaf, which was about 8 inches in width. I cropped the edges, which had a lot of unsightly debris and embedded material. C&C appreciated, as always.

    A very well processed image. Amazing detail. You should pop it into the current Themed Challenge.

    I agee Al; that should be in the Nature Abstracts. I am a knitter who aspires to translate patterns in nature to fibre art and I find that photo really inspiring. I expect I will be referring to it in future.

    I entered this photo in the Nature Abstracts last night, but thanks for the encouragement! It also seems to me this would make an interesting texture, if I could find a suitable subject. Thank you both, Donald and Janis... if you haven't noticed yet, I find abstract patterns like this fascinating, so I can't resist these shots.
