Photo Hunters~ Metal

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

METAL is such a great theme. I am excited to see all the different varieties that bloggers choose to share this week.

I was eager to snap a few pics tonight of some rusted metal. From a distance it sure can be a sight for sore eyes, but up close, I think it is beautiful. I love the texture and color of it. It was a joy playing with my macro lens, and this fabulously oxidizing metal. Rust is a red or brown oxide coating on iron or steel caused by the action of oxygen and moisture.











Thanks for stopping by my blog this week. :) I hope you enjoyed my take on METAL.
Have a great weekend, and a fabulous Easter.

Leave it to you, Corey. Rust IS pretty. Who'da thunk it? As always, I'm amazed and a little tiny bit jealous! ;)

Napaboaniya said...

Corey, nice macro shots of the rust.

I'm living pretty near to the beach, and most of my metal furnitures turn rusty after a while. It's a real pain to scrap and re polish them!! *pulls.hair.out*

Happy Easter Corey :)

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Corey, you done a beautiful job with this theme... your metal photos are very nice!

Happy Easter!

Barbara H. said...

Those are amazing shots! I never knew rust could be so interesting.

pelfy said...

Love all your shots this week. I didn't know rust can be so beautiful - maybe I should stop painting metals and let them rust! haha (= happy weekend (=

Randi said...

I love rust too!
Your photos are just beautiful!

This is my favorite post so far! You are so creative and the pictures are beautiful! I'd of never thought they were rusted metal!

Joyismygoal said...

oh yes isn't it so pretty Ii love rusty things

Carolyn said...

Beautiful. I'm thinking I could probably find something rusty to take a picture of here in rainy Vancouver. Actually, I guess the trick would be for me to find something made of metal that WASN'T rusty! LOL

Lynn said...

They're beautiful because they were taken perfectly.

diXymiss said...

Nice work! I like rusty piX too.

eastcoastlife said...

Up close, the first pic is really beautiful. I didn't know rust can be so pretty. hehe...

Criz Lai said...

Your shots on the rusty metal are beautiful Corey. Just make sure that you do not get scratched by the rustiness. It's poisonous :)

jams o donnell said...

What superb studies. I am in awe of your talent. Have a great weekend

francine said...

perfect shots!

Carver said...

I love those shots and agree about how beautiful metal is when it's rusted, particularly with the macro shots.

AnnD said...

Oh my! You are sooo right! Such beauty! This was a tough one for me. I realized I hadn't taken a lot of pics of metal!

mama meji said...

Great macros. They -rust- are perfectly captured. So vivid.

Jenty said...

I love the series of shots! All of them actually. The colours you picked up with your macro lens are amazing!

Terry said...

Corey, You are so talented that you can even make rust look good. Amazing. Have a great holiday.

Crooked Eyebrow said...

I love your rusted metal. Wonderful!

**"Liza"** said...

awesome macro shot of the metal rust! You did a fantastic job on this..

JC said...

Well done! As you've shown, rust really can be beautiful :-)

Fishman said...

Rust never looked so good before for me!

pat said...

Wow - generally rusty things do not look good but your closeup photos do indeed made them look very artistic! Great shots!

Happy Weekend.

WillThink4Wine said...

Yes, it is all in the perception, isn't it? I just saw an old rusty anchor that was equally lovely. Excellent take this week!

Tokenhippygirl said...

What a lovely selection of photos! Happy Easter and happy hunting!

Carin said...

Never knew rusty metal could look so lovely. Really like your photo's on the theme.

Happy Easter !

Flo said...

Okay, I am not a big fan of rust. Living in Hawaii things rust in 48 hours if left out. But I have to say, these pictures are great!! You did a fantastic job taking them. Mine's up, but not near as clever, over at Flo's Place

byrningbunny said...

I am a fan of rust. I love the colors and textures and the way that you can play with the lenses to change the effects. Beautiful. #2 was my favorite. Looked like someone's eyelash was winking at me! lol

starnitesky said...

Beautiful photos of rusting metal, the variety of colour is amazing.

Sarge Charlie said...

Lots of old rust here, nice post, my original photo post had some old farming iron and other farmhouse items, I added a second entry because of something I saw while visiting other photo hunts, please stop by both, happy easter

parentingissues said...

Amazing that you could make rust look so interesting. Goes to show there is art everywhere if you look carefully enough. Great pics!

Charlotte said...

The colors and texture are beautiful in these. Thanks for sharing your unique perspective!

Nola said...

I just love your interpretations! And your eye! Always impressed.

Wow this is wonderful. The macro lens is so cool! The beauty of close up and intimate offers so much more appreciation for the beauty. I love it too.
