Rocks, my favorite subject.  This first one is "Snoopy in a Robe." Found in Killarney Provincial Park, Ontario.

The rest are a few from around North America

Very nice, my kind of rock shot! It looks like an abstract cave painting.

Great thread!  Lots of really interesting stuff.

I'm currently re-processing this capture to lighten the sky and tone down the burnt edges ... but here's the 'before' and I'll post the refined version when done.

This is great. Would you feel comfortable with taking a nap in the shade?

Sorry about the watermarks on the Keelung images. The non-watermark version are on my fried hard drive which I haven't gotten around to recovering the data from yet.

Funny you should ask.....NO, I wouldn't feel comfortable.
No word of lie, here is the rock's 'road' sign. It sits a few meters away from the rock. Somehow somebody with particularly poor driving skills couldn't avoid it. LOOK at the scenery! How could you NOT notice it/avoid it? Luckilys/he hit the marker and not the rock!!

Don't know if Gary and I were shooting Arches on the same day but this image of Balanced Rock has almost the identical color as his on page 2. Mine is also Velvia.
