ROCKS

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.
Prior to this year I would not have seen
anything beautiful in these pictures.
I wouldn't have taken the time to really SEE the rocks.
Now I am in awe of the lines....of the color...of the shapes.

Memories of college in PA are flooding back.

Amazing to think that these images were eons in the making. Nice catch Kerri.
Thanks,

i know what you mean, i love to see things through the camera lens, not as snapshots, but as pieces of abstract art. I also think blogging opens your eyes, things you take for granted around you suddenly become potential photos to share with the rest of the world, to whom they are not familiar.

Well done!

I have been doing photography for 40 years, but it was only after I started taking (more or less) daily strolls carrying a camera that I really got to see things.

I've always liked rocks. They are not only beautiful to look at but, amazing to think about how they were formed.

As many of us are learning, photography is an "eye opening" experience!

Good captures here, nice compositions

It is the simple things in life I find the greatest enjoyment out of. I, too, begin to look at things around me in a different light after I got my camera about 4 years ago. Always looking for what would be a fantastic shot in the simplest of things!

Yes, how do you say this? "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder"?

I understand, but I've come to love the textures and colors of such things as well. And now I like to revisit such places when I know that the sun will be at different angles than before to add depth to the textures and whatnot.

Fun stuff, learning to see details that you would have otherwise looked past. I find that just the fact of having a camera in hand causes me to see better, to learn more of what's around me and to appreciate it more.

Even if no one but me ever saw my photos, it would still be a blessing for me to have seen and acknowledged the details.

very nice shots here! I think rocks are one of natures most beautiful creations that take millions of years to create!

When I see the erosion that caused formations (which is what I think happened in the first photo) or uplift (the 2nd), I always try to imagine what the land was like before those things happened. How long did it take? what animals had to move out of the way? It is so fascinating.

I like the pictures a lot and the barn is very good too. Photography definitely makes us look at the world differently than others.

I enjoyed seeing and reading about your rock photos. My dad was a rock hound and we spent many a summer hunting for rocks. dad also made jewelry from some after cutting with a diamond saw. One of my fondest childhood memories.

Lovely subtle colors and patterns! Very nice. I am always trying to capture subtle shades of grasses and rocks and then feeling as if no one will "get it" or care. Very nice. :-D
