Texture Gallery: Nature, Flowers, Plants

These photos have been created by Smashing Magazine readeres in our Smashing Texture Contest. What can you do with them? You can use all textures for both private and commercial projects for free, without any restrictions whatsoever. However, you are not allowed to offer these files for download; please respect the interestes of over 300 participants of our contest. Please also consider the license information attached to the .zip-archives you download from our server. When it comes to usage of textures, different photographers may have different opinions and intentions.

Some .zip-archives also contain further images of the same photographer. The file size of .zip-archives is between 1 and 15 Mb (depending on image resolution) which makes over 700 Mb space storage. This is also a reason why we have decided to not offer all textures in one single archive. It is very likely that due to huge amount of data and manual work some links contain errors — please inform us about them. And sorry for inconvenience.

Taken with my Fujifilm Finepix V10 on May 28th, 2007 – almost a year ago.
The texture is from the the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park,
Wyoming, USA. The vivid orange colors are made by carotenoid molecules, produced
by huge mats of algae and bacteria.
