A triangulation point, used by the Ordnance Survey for mapping. They stopped using them several years ago (using GPS mapping now), and many were removed, but a campaign to keep some as a reminder of times past, means that there's still a few dotted around the landscape. This is one of the remaining 'trig points', and they seem to draw walkers (seeking the high points), such that any visiting space alien might conclude that they held some religious significance for people.

Not exactly a rock, but a stony concretion nonetheless, so a bit of poetic licence with this one.

Nice one Bill,
I’ve always liked trig points as they guarantee a good view.
I did Ten Tors as a kid and have a huge respect for the quality of the OS maps that trig points allowed. With a map and compass on Dartmoor it’s nice not having to worry about fog.

You might know anyway but there is a good website about trig points,
http://www.trigpointinguk.com/

Nicholas Crane in his series “The map Man” did a good article as well,
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/731568/Britain-Master-of-all-he-surveys.html
Quote;
“The pillar on top of Cadair Idris in Wales took 12 days to construct, and required a team of packhorses rented from a Dolgelly coal merchant to carry the 42 cwt of chippings, sand and cement to the 3,000ft summit of the mountain. In his report, the builder complained of "terrible" mists and heavy rain. “

Puts carrying a DSLR and tripod in perspective. ;-)

Definitely in need of a bump but getting closer to 80 000. Another from Bombo Headland.

Three rocky landscapes of Valtelline Valley: 1) Pizzo del Teo; 2) Cime di lago Spalmo and Corno di Dosdè (this one far on the left) (panorama); 3) Corni Bruciati.

And we have broken the 80 000 mark. Now to regain the lead over those tree people.

Really like this, Tom - shows the power of water to move stone in a very direct way!

Bombo is great and Remarkable Rocks are too.



Happy bump day.

A couple from the beach at Kilve, just down the road from me ...


Just down the road!? Why aren't we seeing more of your exploring here...I hear Wynn Bullock calling to you, "Mysteries all around, even in the most familiar things, waiting only to be perceived"

Both of your posts invite me to find this place, to want to know this place... (It would take more than Neptune's call to drag me away,) From the "visual notes" you have made you could fill long passages of time in this place. What a landscape!, with what looks to be an amazing geological story to tell. Selfishly as the viewer I want to see you drown out my thinking, my looking, with your seeing. I wish for you the gift of long time in this wonderful location by dark and all manner of wonderful light.

Rock pile in the Davis Mountains of West Texas from a distance. Click image for a larger version..





And an old news paper at Three Rivers Petroglyph site in New Mexico..  Still a rock I think.







And some fossils up close. I guess these would still be considered a "rock" even if it isn't a landscape. (-:}
