Beautiful color, textures and grain. Great chunk of petrified and a fine view of it. Good entry.

Wonderful detail and colors, Bill. Very nicely seen and captured.

Bill, an excellent post for the geological WC theme here. I assume the red rust coloring is brought on by heavy iron-ore concentration. … :+1:
In the end for me it’s about the history with these petrified wood / rock/ fossils. To think mankind’s lifespan would barely cover one microscopic grain of this materials existence… :sunglasses:

Besides the rich colors, I like the composition. All the lines and shapes really work together here. Great job lining this all up.

Great colors, texture and lines. I love it.

Bill, this looks great. The warm tones are striking and your composition is excellent.
