Remarkable Rocks
« Reply #80 on: April 29, 2009, 11:41:08 AM »

I just got back from a couple of weeks in Southern Utah -- many amazing rocks.

Here is one of the oddest I have seen anywhere. It was about a foot across, and there was one similar one nearby, but I didn't see anything like it anywhere else. Is it a fossil? Some weird erosion pattern (there are many such in Utah)?

Well, it's definitely showing a pattern of erosion.  The question is, what caused the depression in the first place?  Is there a softer layer overlying a harder layer underneath, or was there a footprint that eroded away at the edges?  Hmmm...

Over a week with no rock photos! Hopefully this gets everyone active again:

On my way back from my South Coast holiday I stopped in at Bombo again. Here are some images.

I have been taking photos on the same rock for 2 months now. Here are some images:

I haven't seen any new rock photos for a while so I thought I would add these.

They are from Cape Leveque in the Kimberely, Western Australia.

I named my photography website after Eagle Rock on Lake Tahoe's West Shore - an interesting mix of volcanic breccia, basalt, et. al.  In my opinion, it offers the best views of the lake anywhere.  Here's some shots from and of it:

Bill, I went to your site and started to look at it, but I gave up when I realised that every shot was ruined by your large, obtrusive copyright notice. I understand the need for some protection, but I really think you've dramatically overdone it. It looks as if you have some good work there, but I can't be bothered to imagine what the images might look like if they were unspoiled.

This was exactly my reaction, too. I quit looking once I realized that I couldn't see the scenes for the "billboards". If you want to use included copyright notices, I suggest making them much smaller and placing them near an edge of the image, not across the middle.

Thanks for the advice guys.  I think I can make a universal change to the watermark, so I'll try to come up with something more subtle.

Re: Spider Rock

Please tell us more about where this is and how you took it. I think the shadow of the rock lends a great deal to the image.

Great job!
