While looking up can give you some wonderful, lofty views, looking down is a study of texture and subtle patterns.
Like the quirky abstract shapes of roots making their way up between rocks, moss and a carpet of fallen pine needles...
...or the swirly pattern of pine needles left behind after the last mini flood...
...or the tiny grains of sand lodged in the crevasses of an old weather-worn piece of wood from the paths along the beach.
Details. I love the little details. They are everywhere.
We just have to look with the right eyes.
