Some rocks have so much character that photographing them is taking their portrait.

This portrait does have character but I’ll bet you shot some some closeups as well.

You’re right, Ken, but of this rock I liked this shot best. You can always click on it to see more detail.

Are those fossilized plant stems or other such formations? It’s beautiful whatever it is.
The lines are where the shale is breaking apart and moisture has turned it dark; this shale is very brittle.

Totally true – perfect statement for this image.

Some fascinating detail in that rock that almost doesn’t look real. Could be the source of a great bunch of abstracts, I suspect, Linda.

Thanks for your comment, Andy. I tried getting in closer, but wasn’t happy with what I got. I should have tried harder or longer. The rock didn’t look like this anymore yesterday. I suspect that the strong rain and consequent fast-moving river water busted up this rock and moved the pieces downstream.
