Well...... not really :) :) :) But it kinda looks like it could be....... This is actually a piece of ceramic material from a Cummins LNG engine's catalytic converter. The engine ran so hot it actually melted the ceramic element in the converter. This chunk is about 1.5 x 1.5 x 2 inches. I used a 90mm Tamron SP Adaptall macro lens, manual mode with my Nikon D7100, set the ISO at 400 and did 1 sec. exposures. I used f16 with the lens.

Appreciate the kind comments. I used a small LED flashlight to try and add some shadow effects.....

You have succeeded in making a work of art from an automobile accident!

a little late for a cover-up. We can all see that it's part of an alien skeleton. :D

Congrats on seeing the photographic possibilities here! Super-interesting textures and shapes. #2 works best for me - the light and perspective.

Thanks much for the kind words..... It was actually a 40 foot city transit bus. It's one of our new natural gas powered vehicles. Unfortunately they have a tendency to run REALLY hot!!!!!

Amazing stuff. Yes I remember having to redesign many of our trucks to accept the new Cummins engines due to tighter emissions regulations.
