    Fantastic capture Kathie! From the thumbnail it looks like a figure standing at the bottom of a waterfall! I love the marks on the left side, they look Asian, almost like a name or title!

  • Hi Joanne, and thankyou, I think this was from a wrecked car, looks like a sideswipe and scrape, the paint peeling and rusting a little over time.
