The Ozarks is a rocky place. Here's a couple of recent ones. First is of Elephant Rocks; second is of a multicolored rock along the St. Francis River.

Just heading off on a two week photography tour of the South Coast so I thought I should give my thread a bump before it falls too far down.

It has been a slow climb towards 50 000.

These shots are from Corroboree Rock in the East MacDonnell Ranges, Central Australia.

That's a great rock, Tom.  The third perspective is my favourite.

Nice rocks, Tom.

To me they suggest fossilized dinosaurs.

This is a shot I got a couple of days ago at Johnson's Shut-ins. I believe in putting people in scenic shots to show scale, otherwise it's just another shot of rocks and water. If the person has the right poster, I think it also adds to the story.

Devil's Marbles @ Dusk, Northern Territory, Australia 2006.   The area was said to be formed from giant eggs laid by cosmic serpents in the Dreamtime, according to local Aboriginal History







I have some other 'fun' shots that show more of the marble-ness that I may upload later, but these three two had the best light & composition.

I have an image of your second  group of rocks from the other side.

It's good to see some Australian images in my thread.

Karlu Karlu is a great spot for photography. My images from ther are in the first page of my thread.

cheers,

So they are, and I re-iterated the history nearly verbatim.

I managed to see a good chunk of the NT, went down the Queensland coast, across to Perth and settled there for the remainder of '07.  Never did see the Pinnacles despite a few visits up to Geraldton.  There are some great rocks up in Kakadu too!

The Pinnacles appear a couple of times in the thread and are a great place for rocks and clouds.

feel free to add to the collection.

Love the one of Danseys Pass, very strong elements and tones!

Agreed.

I also like the Death Valley one a lot. On my one trip there I was so overwhelmed by the fantastic colors that I'm sure I missed lots of great B&W opportunities.

I really like the tonal range and moodiness of #2...thanks for sharing!

They're good: I find them vaguely reminiscent of some of Eric's road tar shots. Maybe it's the lighting.

Maybe that's why I immediately took a liking to them.
I love the dark and spooky effects.
