I’m participating in the online adventure travel magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggersThis week’s Challenge is: Texture in Nature!
First of all, when I think of textures, it brings me back to my 3D art days of applying textures to shapes to make them look realistic and lifelike. So in this week’s challenge, I’ve included some of my favorite textures that I’ve found in and around Zion National Park, Utah, near Las Vegas, NV, and also on the Arizona Strip. Enjoy!
This is a Pictograph that is over 2000 years old. It is near Zion National Park. It reminds me of the latest Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie.
This is a glass mine on the Arizona Strip where natural glass is very abundant.
Here is a closeup of a log on Mt. Charleston near Las Vegas, Nevada.
Another pictograph that’s over 2000 years old inside Zion National Park.
Last, but not least, is a petroglyph near Zion National Park that is about 2,500 years old. It is very similar to Newspaper Rock over in Canyonlands National Park, but not as extensive.
