Sunday Stills (2/19/12 Textures)

This week's Sunday Stills photo challenge is to capture textures.

 In this first photo, there is cold, wet snow on soft, smooth, prickly pine needles.

Here's more cold, wet snow on smooth glass.

Sophie Rose has deep, soft fleece that you just want to sink your hands into.

This plant has a slippery, rubbery texture.

This vulture has the gnarliest head, doesn't he? I imagine it would feel sort of like a rubber chicken. But that collar of white down looks so soft!

I wonder if a sea lion's body feels warm or cold? This picture shows cold, hard rocks and glassy, smooth water too.

I love this photo with the round, splash ripple and the sporadic sun reflections in the water. The little seal's spread flippers do the rest. Oh, and there's more textures, in the bottom right corner, there is a bit of netting.

There's sawdust on Rozie the elehant's back. I imagine her coat is smooth and bristly with fine stiff hairs.

 In closing, this photo has it all: smooth, round wood poles, rough stucco, warm, hairy giraffe, and prickly cactus

So many great photos, and texture combo's! My fav is the sea lion sunning on the rock. Various colored textures, and the reflections & lighting are great!

I like your variety of textures. I think the elephant is my favorite, although Sophie Rose's back is neat, too. Maybe I just like 'stuff' on the animal's backs!
