I am sure it is called The Viper Rock.

That would make sense.  Certainly looks like a cobra to me.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your work!!

Here's one more...

Does this cairn count? On the top of the Bealach, Applecross.

An interesting thread. Considering that they don't move or change their appearance much, I've always found rocks to be a fascinating subject and it seems quite a lot of you do as well. Anyway here are a few more:

Rocks and clouds, that would be cool.Cheers, David

Here you go:



Cheating slightly here; this is actually an outdoor sculpture called Deirbhle's Twist in Mayo, Ireland. Although they *are* real rocks!

Here is one of mine:



The interesting thing about this shot is what looks like a twig, is actually a tree 30 or 40 feet long.

Quite often it is easier to make small things look large than to make large things look monumental.

Here are a few more shots of Remarkable Rocks.

Remarkable in a difference sense, perhaps?

I'm new to using this board, so I hope no one will mind too much if I use this thread as an experiment to see if I can learn how to post a photo into a thread topic.

For me, The Windows Section at Arches NP rocks! (er, excuse the pun.)

Commence experiment:




Could someone reply or send me a PM and tell me how the little black framed reduced size photos are done? I tried looking under the "help" section but didn't see it. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?  TIA.

Here's one from me, called "The Rock" in the area (Gibraltar)



One of the few days it didn't have a cloud at the top.

Ah, gottcha; so the other option than inserting image by URL like I did in my post. Will make a note of it. Thanks.

Here are some rocks from Bombo, two hours south of Sydney.

Bombo is a world class geological site, so what did they do? They built a sewerage works in the middle of it.

If you were a Power Rangers fan you may have seen the quarry as scenes were shot there. The quarry is also popular for still and video ads. One video had a SUV going down from Bombo and then travelling across land and going up the Grand Canyon.

These pics were taken with my first digital camera, the Nikon 990, how things have changed Au$250 for a 64MB card.

Cheers,

PS Reading the paper this morning I saw that due to the strong Euro, Gibraltar is now being swamped by Spaniards taking advantage of low English pound.

Great. I guess some feel that the color is overdone, but sometimes I like it that way, and often I too stress the colors:

Btw, this is the Shakespeare Arch in Kodachrome Basin, Utah. The namesake was not the English writer but the rancher of the park, who found the formation.

Not sure if you mean the colors overdone in mine, but both, incl the turret arch shot were shot years ago on velvia slide film, hence the more saturated warm & cool colors.

Wow... a thread where everyone is sharing their work and nobody is yelling!  Keep 'em coming!!

(hope I didn't jinx it...)  

Here are some smaller rocks from Shuswap Lake.  Their colours are more interesting than their shapes, though...  

Mike.
