What is it?

Not sure if this has been done before, but maybe it will be fun. Rules are simple, post something not easy to recognize, and see if anyone can guess what it is.

Anyone can join in, whatever camera you want, although I'm sure everyone would prefer a Pentax...any time frame but those shot just for this purpose would be nice...just not required...

OK...

What is it????

Great idea Pete and I assume whoever guesses correctly takes the next turn to post.

OK, I think it's something submerged. An old umbrella ?

It's done before, yeah, but it's fun indeed. I guess it's a painting of some sort?

My guess is that this is clay of some sort, or stucco on the wall.

My guess it is simply a close up of a wall.

Both close, but no banana. Submerged, partially clay...but I think the closest umbrella was about 100 feet away in my Jeep...

Didn't really plan on any posting restrictions, post if you want to and direct guesses to that person.

Maybe a partially submerged (viz. clay) old bicycle frame. ?

The only reason I suggested taking turns was because if we have a lot going on, some of the posts could get 'buried'. It's your game

Very good point, and taking turns would be fine with me, whatever the common consensus is I'll ride along with it.

And still close, but not a bicycle frame...

I think it's something iron, just under the surface of water. It looks flat to me. The rust seems to have been disturbed by something brushing against it or flowing over it.

But just what it is . . . I'm not sure I can even guess that. (After all, I might be all wet about the rust!)

Whatever it is, I like the image!

Close again, but still no banana...

Rust was involved at one time, and it's mostly flat.

I knew this would be tough to guess, but didn't think it would be this tough...

Rust...clay...submerged...flat...somewhere a figurative light bulb has to be popping on...

Been up a week with no results. How about a time limit or number of guesses?

Could it be a ships or buoy anchor (grapnel or mud hook) ?

Sediment in an old tub...I like that one, inventive guess...

OK I guess it's not going to be identified, so I'll give in.

I don't want to place many restrictions on this, I'm not too big on rules and regulations anyway. Anyone can feel free to post something else at any time, I figure if you're going to try a guess on a photo you'll probably be looking at it, so simply refer to the user name and maybe post number (top right of each post) and that should be sufficient.

We have a bayou here where I go to shoot pictures at times. The levee where a small wooden bridge was built years ago is primarily red clay. After one f our rare rains this year a shallow mud puddle formed, and the top of the water froze. I was there the next morning and got this picture after it thawed.

This picture is a shot of the tracks in the red mud from ice expanding and then thawing in a mud puddle. Water stayed on top, some mud sank, I just cropped it so none of the leaves and twigs in the mud were visible...
