The special textures of Mother Nature comes in all shapes, sizes and conditions.
A lone discarded pine cone lies on dried up old twigs, grass and what not.
One day while hiking, I was taking photos of the ocean and Catalina island in the distance only a few yards away from this spot. When I turned around to head back on the trail, I noticed this lone pine cone.
I'm not sure why this caught my eye, but it did. Maybe it was the textures, maybe it was the cycle of life. It's funny how being in nature makes you pay attention to the big as well as smaller things in life.
