Rust and other fragments in the landscape

No time in the studio/garage today as I was helping a friend move house. One of the payoffs however was seeing the vehicle below on the side of the bush road. I love the way nature is just incorporating the vehicle into landscape by growing around and through it.

It reminded me of the other bits of rust and worn layered paint that I captured in Scotland; including some bits of rust in the snow. So for rust lovers here are a few photos.
