I found this beautiful split tree stump on the grounds of the Cedar Key Museum State Park in Cedar Key, Florida, USA. It had wonderful neutral tones and lots of texture.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Yes it has wonderful tones and textures and it looks like your in a plane looking down into a landscape of rushing rivers.

  • I hadn’t thought of that, but I can see it now! Thank you so much!

    Terrific find well captured, Dot – you know I’m gonna love this one!

  • Thanks a million, Monnie. I have another coming up soon of the same stump. So many different textures and colors in that old stump, I wish I had stayed longer and taken many more closeups.
