17th April 2012 – Cracked – the affects of time and water in rock.

I was driving by a fantastic rock face today.  It is not too tall, about 30ft high and about 100ft long, but the cracks in it made me take a second look.  Most of the angles of the cracks ran from bottom left to top right as I looked at the rock face, except for one which decided to do things differently.  You’ll see what I mean from the photo.

    • Thanks for the visit Sherene. Loving your 52 Pick Up Challenge. It does what is says – challenges – and I often have to go out with your theme in mind, looking for the shot to fit!
