Purgatory Chasm?

I would be curious to see this converted to B&W.

I like it, and agree with Eric about trying B/W. Also (and this may be just me), but that fern is more a distraction than a benefit. Crop or clone?

Hi Bob, Glad you like it. The fern is quite intentional to add a scale queue. I like to add a grounding to abstracts to connect them to the natural world.

I like that better than the color version. It could be my poor color vision, of course.

I thought the word is "quarry," no?

My poor English language skills are confused. I tried "pergola" but it is usually not made of stone. ;)

purgatory
ˈpərɡəˌtrē/
noun
noun: purgatory; plural noun: purgatories; noun: Purgatory

    1.
    (in Roman Catholic doctrine) a place or state of suffering inhabited by the souls of sinners who are expiating their sins before going to heaven.

Purgatory Chasm State Reservation is a state-owned geologic preserve and public recreation area located off Route 146 in the town of Sutton, Massachusetts. The state park is notable for its .25-mile-long (400 m), 70-foot-deep (21 m) chasm of granite bedrock with abrupt precipices and boulder caves where ice lingers into the early summer. It is managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Various theories have been proposed to account for the chasm's creation. According to one, the chasm was created when glacial meltwater from a burst ice dam ripped out blocks of bedrock at the end of the last Ice Age (14,000 years ago). Purgatory Chasm was declared a state park in 1919.
