More Stones Than You Can Shake A Stick At

Desert Dolphin has just released a new set of stock photography, this one of 50 stone textures. The royalty free collection of various stone images provides artists and graphic designers with a new collection of beautiful and versatile textures. According to Desert Dolphin:

Desert Dolphin, Inc., the worldis smallest stock photo source, has added a new collection of 50 Stone Textures to its line of royalty-free CDs.

These are not your fatheris stones. There is no clichei polished marble here and thereis nothing that can be taken for granite. The 38 mb images range from gorgeous lichen patterns found in the mountains of Colorado, to desert sandstone from the canyons of southeast Utah. Thereis earth-quake tortured stone from California and even lava flows from the big island of Hawaii.

This is the best that mother nature has to offer in all her unpredictable subtlety. Perfect for use as unique backgrounds or in composites, this is the designeris chance to sidestep the competition with something totally original.
