The poor rocks were sinking, here's some more from Bombo on the South Coast. It looks like the trees are getting more posts but Remarkable Rocks still has more views. How about some contributions.

Thanks for sharing, Tom!  Love the first one.  I'll have to see if I can dig up some rock shots...

I returned to Wallaby Rocks, the wattles are out and the place looks great. Interestingly I ignored the yellows and went for black and white.

Tom. they are all good, but I really like the first. I think it is the roundness of the rocks combined with the vertical trees that really does it for me. Like tranquility fighting with tension. Really fine. The irregular shapes of the third set of rocks is also very good. Excellent work!

It's a tranquil place now but 160 years ago it would have been a whole different spot. Sofala, just down the road had 40 000 people looking for gold. I've seen people panning for gold a few metres downstream from the images. I'm surprised that there aren't people there now what with the price of gold being what it is.

It was. It's an abandoned tuna fishery. Pretty hard to find and out of the way of most Sicily itineraries, but well worth it photograhically. While there were buildings and piers, I found the rocks picured most intriguing. The seagulls seemed to be waiting for the fishing boats to return..

Just googled it and they even have a website.

Delicate Arch in B&W.  The Navajo sandstone glows so beautifully red, I'm sometimes torn about doing B&W conversions.

4x5 crop
Focal length:24 mm
Exposure:1/25
Exposure bias:0 EV
Aperture: f/14
ISO speed:ISO 200
2 stop soft GND

I  broke my GND shortly after this. I snapped it right in two. :(

Was that intentional?

Thanks for sharing your work, you two!

Haha! No, it was accidental.  I was changing it (going from 2 stop to a 1 stop) and dropped it.   I caught it, but at a weird angle and put enough stress on it that it broke.  New on already on order...

Glad to see that this one is still running. Clearly the supply of Remarkable Rocks is holding up well and long may it do so.

Here are a few more from the North of Scotland.

Thought I'd put this one in here, but I guess not:
