Close-up texture of stone covered with colorful lichen. HDR composite from multiple exposures. Fictional title inspired by the cracked contours reminding me a horse's face & neck, with a surreal twist for the varying shades of color. Enter the mythical kelpie, a shape-shifting water spirit commonly appearing as a horse. Now you might wonder how a stone surface fits into the context of water... two completely different elements, yet interconnected in this case as I captured the texture a stone's throw away from Pendleton Lake in Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia (USA).
