Is that a holy rock? I'm just wondering about the halo  ;)

I've been watching too many videos online lately and I had to restart my computer. Bridge opens up automatically on restart and it happened to open up on my last trip to Tasmania.

Looking through the images I found shots of the exact same rocks you posted. My shots were take around midday on an overcast day, so they weren't much to mention. Sometimes it is a small world.

Hello Landscapers,

First photo contribution to this wonderful forum. You may recognize this 'rock.'

Straight out of the camera, shot with my Rebel XTi/400D and the 10-22 hand-held.

Tom

Here is another one from the same area in Tasmania. Unbelievable light - captured using a Horseman 617 camera and Velvia 50 film. This is a two minute exposure.

Sperella Valley, West Grosina Valley, gneiss rock polished by the (ancient) glacier. But what was I doing there alone?

Ball's Pyramid
« Reply #354 on: July 09, 2015, 03:12:43 PM »

I'm getting used to my changed email address but I wanted to update this thread as I think it is an interesting part of the Luminous Landscape.

Bell's Pyramid is 20km over open seas from Lord Howe Island which is but a dot in the Pacific Ocean. Not the best image but I think the thread needs a second go.

Ooh, so many great rocks!

Here's a few of my favorite rocks from a wonderful local recreation area, Hartman Rocks. I mountain bike there a couple times a week in the summer and ski there in the winter. So many interesting rocks to enjoy!

This rock has some rude names, but in the tourism brochures it's called Pinnacle Rock.  ::)

The cave at Reynisdrangar in Iceland

Looks small when looking in:


But standing against the back wall looking out you can appreciate the full size:

That's very cool, pegelli. That looks like basalt or some such igneous rock, with the fracturing into relatively uniform units due to rate of cooling. The Giant's Causeway in Ireland nearby has the best known example of this phenomenon. Local to me in Missouri is another small example, Hughes Mountain - lots of reddish basalt "bricks" of varying size. Cool rocks, indeed!
