That's very attractive brickwork. I've seen similar patterns, but not the several soft colors of the bricks. Very pleasing wall.

A plant once again providing some interesting natural patterns.

Red berries out in a swampy area along one of the woodland paths where we walk. A visusal jumble and jungle - - no place your eyes to pause.

I hadn't really noticed the colors at first, just took the photo for the pattern. But with some PP it really brought out the different brick colors.

Now, here's one I really liked. The textural aspects are kind of subtle, but there are two distinct kinds of textural contrasts, one vertical (the rough grass/bushes and the soft clouds) and the other horizontal (the thorny black locust tree set against the refracted setting sun).

If by Black Locust you mean the Robinia pseudoacacia, its thorns are paired at the base of branches or leaf buds, not single and occurring anywhere along the branch. Those paired black locust thorns are also flattened at the base. See this photo borrowed from the wikipedia article about the species:



What you pictured (very nicely!) looks like a small Honey Locust ( Gleditsia triacanthos )to me. Their thorns are rounded, can be branching, and can occur anywhere on branches or even mature bark of the trunk. But that doesn't mean that in your locality they happen to get called Black Locusts. Common names for plants vary a lot.

Ah, very likely a honey locust. Filthy things in a lawn, but the pigs love'em. I'll have to go back in the fall to see if it's got those seed-pods.

But all that aside, what did you think of the contrasting characteristics of the major elements in the picture?

If the trees you are talking about have very large, broad seed pods that livestock love, that too points to the honey locust. Black locusts have very small seed pods, with tiny inedible or possibly poisonous seeds.

I like the contrast between the thorny branches and the finer, smoother, and more colorful textures in your picture!

I've posted some honey locust pictures in this or other PF threads in the past.

Two versions of snow a dusting of snow on tree bark. The second is just a crop of the first. Not sure which I like better.

From my ass-essment and the resulting ass-imilation, I ass-ume it is what I think it is.
I'd say it is the south end of a northbound elephant.
