Here they are: Photo textures of colorful stone walls. As usual, you can download all those stock images for free by clicking on the low-res pictures (and use them in your designs, on your websites or as backgrounds of course, but please don´t re-distribute them. These are FREE ROYALTY-FREE IMAGES but not copyright-free images).
Some of the stone walls are ages old, some old but renewed, and some new with shiny stones, after all I could not say which ones I like best, so instead of editing tightly I decided to upload them all so you can go through and see what you need or find useful. Flocking through my photo archives, I found quite a few, so as a result this page may load a bit slow, so please be patient if downloading images takes a bit longer.
Look at these old stones, they have some stories to tell.
As stock photos should be by definition as universally usable as possible, there´s little or no sharpening applied to the images here. You may want to do that according to your needs. A web site background needs perhaps less crispy detail (with a positive effect on loading times).

And a darker one:
I´ll stop here for today to keep the loading times of this page manageable and will post the other half of this texture series the next days. The last image is of an old, dark-colored, grungy stone wall full of green plants:
