Remarkable Rocks
« on: March 18, 2009, 10:27:45 PM »

Whilst eating my cereal this morning the TV show I was watching was broadcasting from Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Having visited there
recently I though about Remarkable Rocks which truly are photogenic.

I thought that there must be thousands of places out there that have great rocks. So come on, show us your rocks.

Cheers,

Thanks for the reply, I was starting to think that clouds were more popular than rocks.

Here are some of our most popular rocks – The Pinnacles in Western Australia.

Rocks are greatful subjects.

An Army in Devil's Garden

The Patriarch Spiral

The Ballerina Slipper

A hard core formation

Burr Trail, Navajo Formation

Burr Trail, Wingate Formation (The Swiss Cheese)

Nice rocks. Karlu Karlu (The Devils Marbles) in the Northern Territory is also a great place to see rocks. Aboriginal people believe that these boulders are the eggs of the Dreamtime's Rainbow Serpent.

Rocks and clouds, that would be cool.
Here are some rocks I've been wondering what to do with. I think they will end up as B&W prints.

Thank you both very much. I've been struggling with the issue of how to achieve a visual unity with these, before I travel half way round the world again to have another go, and attempt the stones I didn't want to photograph last time. Number 1 isn't part of the series, and number 9 I may leave as is. But I think properly converted and printed they will make more sense as a whole in B&W. Unfortunately I have no idea yet how to really do this. Um, another learning curve coming up this year  . David

Vedauwoo in southeast Wyoming has some great rocks - 1.4bn year old Sherman granite sculpted into some remarkable shapes.



It's highly popular with the local climbing community.

(Sorry for full size image - how do you do the thumbnail thing?)

Gabor, I do believe you are right. It must be the soil. Here we seem to only grow these:

One of mine. I remember thinking something when I took it, but I'm not now sure what it was. Looking at it, I can't quite work out whether it's worth anything or if it's just wasting hard disk space. Comments, anyone?
