Ground surfaces are incredibly complex and incredibly useful in building 3D worlds. While I haven't really come near to creating a bunch of seamless textures from these scans, that certainly shouldn't stop me from getting them in the "can" so you or anyone else can benefit from them. Eventually, I may even work them out into seamless textures. But for now enjoy all the scans you find useful.
Wet Rocky Earth
This one required shooting in falling snow and rain but I got it and I didn't lose a camera in the process. It just so happens that freezing your butt off is usually the cost of getting great overcast lighting.
This sand was hard to find when I lived in Colorado and explains the mixed grit of it. Now I live on the coast and will likely find you many other types of sand. But for now this is a great start. I'm still wanting to figure out how to build a material out of it which provides for the glinting, glittering behavior of surfaces like sand, asphalt and such. At present all I can offer is solid scans.
Darkened River Rocks
These rocks are from a river bed that was dry around winter. They are uniquely darkened and caught my attention. I'm wondering if it's the mucky growth that turns them dark on their tops when the river is in full surge. Enjoy!
