One of the many things I loved about visiting the Dolomites (in Italy) was the varied geology. So many rock colors, formations, textures, folds, ridges, spires ... I could go on. It was all delicious to a rock and color-loving photographer like me.

Photograph of a huge, sheer, broken-edged rock face, jutting up in front of an even larger mountain slope. The top of the nearly vertical-faced rock is dotted with tiny conifers that are easily many times taller than a person, but appear minuscule. The rock is a steely blue with hints of lavender, and the mountainside is equally colorful in shades of rust, pale orange and blue. The photo is edged by foreground conifers in the lower corners.

Good example of chemical weathering of chalcedony through vesicles in this artifact from Site 8HI473 near Tampa, Florida. A lot of the "chert" nodules derived from this Oligocene/Miocene (red on map) limestone started as chalcedony prior to weathering. #Archaeology #Geology #Rocks

White porous white to light gray chert with an area of beige, brown & dark gray chalcedony that has small holes surrounded by white chemical weathering.

A close-up of a large, very irregular gray rock surrounded on three sides by the rippling waters of a lake, tinted slightly gold in the late afternoon sunlight. There are deep, wavy striations running across its surface. Some plants are poking through two large cracks. Small leafy ground cover plants blanket the sliver of shoreline visible at the bottom of the photo.

On the seaward side, the waves on most days, come crashing ashore, but we'd find heaps of bones in between.
Seals are known to fight, and perhaps that's what caused deaths, or they come here to die?
I set a few bones on a rock to get a photo.
There's some pretty interesting stuff, on beaches, such as the blanket of irish moss and kelp at the water's edge.

Difficult walking here, my wife has a cane

#HarriganCove #Halifax #NovaScotia #Shoreline #Rocks #Beach #WildIslands #Hiking #Exploring

I suspect a portion of a seal, a bleached white bone, with a center hole. These would be some marine creature, but also could be land mammal bones washed up from other islands where sheep might have been kept once.
Some big rib bones lined up on a rock. They may not be marine mammals, they could easily be from the carcass of a deer that died on the island, or while swimming to it.
Orange blanket of thick, slippery kelp and irish moss 
Kelps are large brown algae or seaweeds. 
Chondrus crispus—commonly called Irish moss or carrageenan moss —is a species of red algae which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coasts
A tangled mess of tree trunks, branches, logs and driftwood, block our path through the edge of the Turnip Patch. Sometimes we had to walk closer to the water to get by obstacles. I wonder what we'll find in the woods over there?

All of #NovaScotia has amazing shorelines, some sandy, some with fascinating rock deposits.

As we move from the north end of the island, we cross an area called THE TURNIP PATCH, probably named for the turnip size boulders that have piled up in a big heap, on a narrow stretch between the end, and the main island portion.
Storms wash up debris, #FlotsamAndJetsam & driftwood
We discovered something else...
Heaps of Marine mammal bones!

#Rocks #Beach #Shoreline #WildIslands #Hiking #Exploring

resilient small spruce trees cling to the rocks, and between them, as far as you can see, is a field of turnip sized rocks, round and smooth and uniform in size, piled up from years of breakers and storms beating them on the shore. 
There are many places like this around here, that are fascinating to discover.
When we reached the summit of the pile of stones, it's a long walk to the rest of the island.  A  bit difficult to walk on these round stones, especially for my wife, who struggles to keep her balance, walking with a cane. 
In the distance, at the end of the rocks, is forested area, the main body of the island
Today it is calm. But this is the windward side of the island. Most days, waves crash right up on the mound, and in storms, it crashed over to the other side of the island, shaping a hill of rocks behind it.  Other islands in the distance
Trapped in the rocks, are thousands of tree roots and logs, driftwood ,flotsam (Washed off ships) and jetsam (tossed off ships, littering) , and debris.
A cooking pot stands out in the rocks, left for decades on the shore. 
Far to the right, appears to be a field.

There are those days when the path to our dreams appears to go up and over rocky, impossible terrain -- so difficult that we can't even see the path. But it's there. And though the progress may seem agonizingly slow, if at all, we still go forward one step at a time. Difficult steps are still steps.

Feel the need to add a bit of context to the fantastic happy rock, because it's such a lovely spot and you can't really see that in the above.

The first here is the one I used to show everybody the face I see, the second shows it from the other side with the tide in. The distinctive rocks are the pink granite of the area, lovely at all times, but it glows a treat during a sunset.

Photograph of an austere, rocky landscape. In the foreground is a slope with a boulder and large rocks. It looks like it might have snowed, but it’s actually a light gray rock streaked with low ground cover (plants). In the background is a hilly landscape with two spires (memorial monuments made from rocks). The clouds are very low, creating a mist between foreground and background, and partially obscuring the monuments.

Been painting for the past few days after too long away from it… here’s a detail of the recent work. #painting #rocks

Peak Experience

A rising sun emerges from the clouds, on the peak of #Velmerstot, Germany.

At dusk, I climbed the Velmerstot, highest peak of the Egge hill range. After a steep climb, I was a bit disappointed. I had been on the rocky hilltop numerous times before. But again the sky was cloudy. No sunrise over mist filled valleys and hills, they all remained steeped in blue. I got pretty cold soon. Then the wind ripped aprt the clouds, bathing the whole scenery in a gorgeous light.
The light stayed, but at noon I decided to make my descend to the Silberbach gorge.

This photogaphy shows the sunrise on a rocky hill peak amid a forest.
The image is flooded with the orange light of a sun that emerges from clouds on the left upper part of the image. Clouds lighted from the underside, a streak of bluesky  and a band of darker clouds form the upper part of the image. 
Some hilltops amidst orange fog are visible in the distance. Dark silhouettes of fir trees in the middle partially block the view of a hill covered with autumn forest. 
Large, angular boulders and smaller rocks make the foreground. Among them, to the right, a shrub with barren twigs is lighted by the sun.

I'm always looking down so as to spot an interesting rock to carve. This one however is different. I have no idea what it is and would like some help on its identification. It was found on a customers property near the home so I have no clue whether it is native to Maine. In other words not found in the wild like my other rocks. Anyone have an idea? It is wet to bring out the black spots

I got caught in rain while taking some shots just south of Girvan yesterday and the drops of rain on the rocks that I was interested in was a problem, so I went back down today to finish off.

I was primarily interested in the deeply veined sedimentary formations, but I just love to see the conglomerates present as well.
