dramatic curves, textures, slashes….
from the Hornby Island 2009 album

Sometimes it is difficult to tell whether they are seen in close-up, or from high altitude. Quite fascinating.
Tom, it is fascinating how that sense of scale and space becomes blurred with these kind of images. I wish I could say that I had wings and floated above the rocks with camera in hand 🙂
They look as if they’ve melted at some point.
Susan, indeed and how the geologic and forces of nature have created all these shapes and textures, and continue to transform them. I still remember looking for favourite ones like the fetus rock, that has since weathered down to nothing.
3 is my favorite–like the “frame” with ripple-weathering and pebbles around the central egg shape.
Marly, that “frame” is like the sea around the island, I think. And that “island” is slowly transforming into one of those “lacy” rocks so common on Hornby and Gabriola Islands.
Yes, so many of the pictures you take are miniature landscapes…
Marly, I do like playing with scale….
