Texture Smörgåsbord

Rusty metal.

More texture than you can shake a rusty piece of metal at! This is part of a "skip" behind the Osceola #13 mine near Calumet, Michigan. A "skip" was a metal rail car which rode rails up and down a mine's shafts. It would be loaded with rock, brought up to the surface, and dumped. The metal bar and scratches here show the rotating action it went through when it was dumped.
