The Daily Post Challenge for Abstract might just be my favorite one yet.  I used to consider it the greatest compliment when someone would look at one of my images and say “That’s a photograph?  That doesn’t look real!”  Nowadays that usually means someone didn’t know when to say no to Photoshop.

The top photo is one I call Sandstone Wall Watercolor.  This is straight off the film, no effects added.  It was taken in a canyon where water was working its erosional magic, and the sunlight was just out of frame and bouncing light all around.

I have a few more favorites in the gallery below.  Some are obvious as to what they are, some not so much.  Details are in the captions in the gallery.
