Today I have a brand new set of 8 vintage rock textures from these massive boulders down by the ocean at the south-west coast of Iceland. These are somewhat related to my previous set from September; Golden Rocks, as the images are from the same area.
Iceland is known for it’s folklore and tales of elves and fairies. Many Icelanders believe that these “hidden people”, called Huldufolk in Icelandic, live in some of these large lava rocks. Even today building projects are sometimes altered to prevent damaging the rocks where the Huldufolk are believed to live. Damaging the rocks would mean a really bad omen for all persons involved.

As I explained in the Golden Rocks post, the majority of rocks in Iceland are volcanic rocks because of it’s young age of only 20 million years. The ones posted today have been battered by the ocean for probably thousands of years, carving them and re-shaping into what they are today. Some of them are covered in tiny seashells and other sea creatures have burrowed themselves into the rock which explains all the small holes in the stone surface. As a result I think they have great diversity for usage as backgrounds, banners and overlays.
These vintage rock textures are large in size, around 20Mb per image, Enjoy!
