On top of my car were these wonderful crystallization patters that I thought were worthy of some pictures. With just a few tweaks on contrast and removal of color, as well as selective cropping, I present to you another world that is rather like Ansel Adams-esque geomorphology (creation of landforms):

The only way you could really see the patterns was to look at a low angle to the surface...when you photograph, the plane of focus is vertical to the camera, and with there being a great distance from foreground to background, only a band in the middle is relatively sharp, hence my horizontal croppings. It would have been nice to look straight down onto the top and get the picture, but little of the patterns would have been visible.
Always fun to see things from a different perspective. Enjoy the bright day!
