Free Burning Stone Textures

Hi guys, today I have a nice set of free burning stone textures. I was going through some of my unused textures trying to find something cool for Halloween and found these images of lava stone. After playing around with them in Lightroom I created a burning like effect that I thought might be a good fit some some haunting backgrounds.

These red stone textures have the effect of burning lava. You can use them for creating hellish backgrounds and Halloween graphics. They might also be usable as overlays for your photos, to create a grunge and damaged effect. In case you need more grungy textures like these, please visit our free grunge texture gallery and have your pick from thousand of grungy backgrounds.

This set contains 13 high resolution textures and is around 200Mb in size. I suggest you use the Dropbox link below to download the zip file containing the textures. If you like them, please leave a comment below and share the textures with your friends. Enjoy!

Free Grunge Rock Crystal Textures

Today I have a really nice set of free grunge rock crystal textures. They were created from images of sharp rock crystals and subtle grunge concrete textures. Like the previous packs I have shared with you, these are from Iceland and can be found in the east part of the island.

The crystalized rocks are very sharp and teeth-like, giving the textures a more horrific appearance. I hope these will come in handy for your Halloween designs, as they will look great as backgrounds for posters, gloomy invitations and website graphics. You can also use them to create a header for your Facebook page.

I hope you enjoy the textures and have a great day!

Free Violet Crystal Textures

Today I have a new set of free violet crystal textures from my collection. These mineral textures always make me think of abstract alien landscapes. And by adding a violet color to the images I think it gave them a more mystical outlook. As for all my rock-crystal textures they come from an mineral called Quartz, from the east part of Iceland. Shot with my 50mm macro lens making the details really nice, therefore giving the textures a lot of depth of field.

Rock crystals like this are very abstract in nature and almost look like old ice. The surface is dirty and imperfect, making them resemble cliffs and mountains from far away worlds. I can see these images being used as backgrounds for posters and covers as well as overlays to create abstract effects to your designs.

Below are 10 high quality textures that you can download by clicking the sample images or by using the Dropbox link at the bottom of the post to download them all at once. Enjoy the free images!

Free Environmental Stock Photos

Today I’m sharing a selection of free environmental stock photos from our gallery. The environment is everything around us as we all live in our own environment, interacting with living and nonliving things around us. Many of us rely on the environment and natural resources to survive.

Environmentalism is a broad movement that feels obligated to protect the natural environment, to keep it safe. It advocates the preservation, restoration and/or improvement of the natural environment, and may be referred to as a movement to control pollution or protect plant and animal diversity.

In this post I will focus on eco-friendly images that promote environmentalism and ecologism. Green energy, recycling and sustainable management of natural resources is a popular subject and you can use the stock photos below to illustrate your blog posts, articles and other material.

Free Red Stock Photos

If you came here looking for free red stock photos, you’re in the right place. Often we need a photo to fit a certain color to match an existing design or color scheme. Colors have different emotions and meanings attached to them, depending on what culture you belong to.

Being one of the first colors in prehistoric art, the pigments of red were used by the Ancient Egyptians and Mayans as ceremonial face painting. The Chinese also used the color red to paint early pottery and the walls of palaces.

Red is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light, next to orange and opposite violet. It is a primary color in the RGB color model and the CMYK color model, and is the complementary color of cyan. While red is the color most associated with love, it also the color most frequently associated with danger, hatred, anger, aggression and war. But in China, India and many other Asian countries it is the color of symbolizing happiness and good fortune.

In this post I have selected 30 images that feature red as their primary color. They range from abstract backgrounds to pictures of food, objects and people. I hope you find something that you can use for your current or future projects, enjoy!

Free Abstract Crystal Textures

Hey guys, today I have a large set of free abstract crystal textures from the East part of Iceland. This type of crystal is called Quartz and is a mineral made out of silicon and oxygen. With many varieties of quartz minerals found around the world, this particular one is called rock crystal.

These rock crystal textures are filled with details and dirt, making them perfect to use as backgrounds and overlays. The crystals also resemble blocks of dirty ice, so it’s not strange that the Romans believed quartz to be water ice, permanently frozen after great lengths of time.

This set of 10 high quality textures can be downloaded via the Dropbox link at the bottom of the post, or you can download each one by clicking the sample images below. Enjoy!

Free Autumn Stock Photos

With summer coming to an end in my part of the world, the autumn is setting in with it’s lovely colors, falling leaves and colder temperatures. This is the time to pick up your camera and start shooting amazing images of the fall landscape. We’re always in need of more free autumn stock photos, so why not share them with the Stockvault community.

Autumn is a beautiful season and marks the transition from summer to winter. In the Northern Hemisphere autumn starts in September but in the Southern Hemisphere it starts in March. With shortening daylight and lower temperatures most trees start shedding their leaves. It’s the season of leaf peeping, also called foliage tour, where people travel to view and photograph the fall foliage in areas where leaves change colors in autumn.

During a few weeks in the autumn season the leaves, mostly green ones, take on various autumn colors. The distinctive colors of fall are shades of orange, red, yellow, purple, black and brown. This is commonly referred to as autumn colours or autumn foliage in British English and fall colors, fall foliage or simply foliage in American English.

I have hand-picked 20 beautiful autumn stock photos from our main gallery that you can use for your website, blog and designs. Enjoy!
