This is very nice ... Wish that plant had a flower , this would add a sparkle in that eye !!!

Hi Ashok,
This is such a heart warming shot! Amazing how lifeless objects (so called) can create eco-system of their own. I wish you had gone a bit wider. And Arun, asking for a flower would be too much given the circumstance :)
Thanks for sharing

Very interesting, you can give to this photo many different interpretations, starting from the eye to the concept of the strenght of life, passing from a feeling of rebirthing.
Comgratulations for your photographic "eye"!

Thank you all,
Arun, hope Nirlep's comment pacify the desire.
Nirlep, shot this with 24mm FF & surrounding are had distracting elements. The crevice is about 2ft wide & 5ft deep.
Fabrizio, as you noted its nature's miracle of regeneration in absolute adverse conditions, earlier thought of naming Phoenix but felt eye of nature would be better.

I love it Ashok! Brilliant seeing this, Nice and Simple and has a very optimistic feel to it. A winner straight out of the camera

Very interesting image! Seeing the thumbnail thought as if the blue one is a spider or a creature.
The full view tells me a different story.

For me this speaks of nature's relentless fight to exist, life's struggle to survive no matter how hard the surface is or how low it has to be begin from again. The image is powerful enough to narrate deeply the soft form of life which appears lost within the toughness we go through in our daily grinding routines. One only needs to be re-discovered, if not by my own self then by my dreams perhaps. This image speaks so much Ashok.

Hi Ashok,
looking at the thumbnail i was trying to decipher what it might be - very intriguing. enjoyed looking at it. In fact i am not sure if you've seen the image of a dead doe by Jim Brandenburg ... this image somehow reminds me of that one.
