old strip mine

a fragment of forest
preserved in shale


Wandering a reclaimed strip mine in Pennsylvania State Game Lands 108, I came across a piece of shaley coal with fossilized traces of ancient plants (fern frond ribs, perhaps?) from the Pennsylvanian (AKA late Carboniferous) period.

Papyrus seemed like an obvious font choice for the name alone. I find it a bit overused in digital haiga, so I believe this is the first time I’ve deployed it.
