Textures in the Landscape

(New Mexico)
While exploring the landscape in New Mexico, I’m always taken by the beauty of my surroundings. There are so many wonderful places, and if I look really closely at the scenes, I see something else. The textures within the view are often just as interesting and beautiful.

The above rocks are aged and cracked, with various algae clinging to the surface. The combination of grittiness and variety of color are pleasing to me. And the thin willow branches densely grouped against the river’s edge creates an intertwining texture.

The gently flowing water of the river above creates another kind of texture with ripples of various blues and greens. Eroded rock on a cliff face with its grain and shadows shows the rugged character it has developed.

Reeds in a Marsh

Dense, parallel reeds in a marsh, with their light tawny color, makes a pattern that becomes a nice texture when viewed up close. These are just a few textures I’ve seen recently that caught my eye. These small things are worth noticing and appreciating.
