What appears to be the eye of a dragon is actually patterns in sandstone at Heil Valley Ranch in the foothills of Boulder County, Colorado. The area has much sandstone that tends to break into flat slabs, and this is one of those surfaces. This picture was taken on January 8, 2011.

Equipment used: Nikon Coolpix 2000, E2000.
