Photo Finish Friday - A Rock and a Pretty Place


I loved the textured look of this huge rock on the hillside in the mountains out west.
Some day I'd like climb closer to it for more intimate shots of it. It looks like a lovely spot to sit and contemplate the scenery.

It sure is a beauty. Its texture reminds me of an elephant's hide.

MizFit said...

it DOES look like an elephants hide! and for some reason to me as though it would made of aged wood...

I just want to climb up it!

Looks like a wonderful place to have a sit and soak up some some.

Lovely pic.

I never really thought of it, Hilary, but you're right.

I see that, too, MizFit.

Crabby, thanks. I'd be there right now if I could.

That is a world-class rock. Thank you.
Someday I must get back to Natural Bridge State Park where some of my favorite rocks are.

That is a wonderful rock! Looks like a great perch for viewing the world!

Reb said...

Wonderful texture! I could see sitting there enjoying the scenery, running fingers over the roughness.

Hello Mary Anne in Kentucky,
you're welcome. It was a pleasure to see that rock in the wild.
Natural Bridge State Park sounds liked a wonderful spot. Maybe someday I'll get to see it.

dfBag Lady, I think it'll be an amazing spot for a rest.

Reb, I'm looking forward to doing just that.

Wonderful rock. After you've recovered from the surgery you might enjoy communing with it awhile. It will give you its strength.

Leah J. Utas said...

Dawn I believe you are absolutely right.

Oh my goodness, Leah, what a beautiful rock. Like you, I want to climb close to it, then climb up on top of it and sit and dream awake for hours.

Leah J. Utas said...

"...dream awake for hours." Oh that is exactly it, Thomma Lynn.

It is very interesting. I wonder what geological happening made it.

Leah J. Utas said...

Hello Lover of Life.
That's a good question. We've got an erratic in town along a walking trail that is used for climbing.

Intriguing rock you've taken a photo of. I bet it has many stories to tell.

Leah J. Utas said...

I'm sure it does, Barbara.
