FAIRY REALM – GROTTO (my very first Redbubble upload)

Deep in the woods, home of the Nature Spirits, welcome to the Fairy Realm.
It never ceases to amaze me what can be seen in inanimate objects, or how we interpret them. I believe this is called Pareidolia, where we descry shapes and figures of things known to us from things that are otherwise random and naturally haphazard. On that note, can anyone see what I can see in the bottom right hand corner? I know what it looks like to me, but what do you see? I would love to know.
Here, I have taken a macro photo of a piece of “A” grade Pietersite, a beautifully translucent crystal. All I have done with this image is saturate the colours, adjust the white colour balance and contrasts, and lightly sharpen the radius, nothing more. Even in a simple rock, magic can be found. The beauty of nature is everywhere; all we need do is look.
Photo taken with Canon IXUS 80 IS and edited with Lightzone. SIMPLICITY is my niche!
