I believes that these are "burls" on a tree located at the Topeka Zoological Park.

"a dome-shaped growth on the trunk of a tree; a wartlike structure sometimes 2 feet (0.6 meters) across and 1 foot (0.3 meters) or more in height, sliced to make veneer."

Patterns and textures of rocks in Death Valley.
My wife and I thought it was beautiful, but just to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, another tourist said, "Oh, Death Valley looks just like slag heaps!"

what's to like?

It is just a simple picture of a trumpeter swan found at the Topeka Zoological Park standing on one leg, right???

I like:

the pattern of the waves coming into the shore and then rebounding back

the circles formed by the drops of water onto the water's surface

the hint of gold in the water

the reflection of the Trumpeter Swan

the pattern formed by the feathers of the swan's breast

the lone large feather, with several smaller ones, on the shore

and

the sense of, at least for me, will the swan on one leg overbalance and fall??

Well it is a slag heap.

And hole.

A very deep hole.

Mrs. Racer and I were in Death Valley a few weeks before you and your wife Arn. Here is some texture from the Artist's Palette.

Two versions of fossil coral. The longitudinal cut (second image) is perhaps more of an abstract than a pattern.
