We traversed Ben Rinnes from east to west and on our descent encountered these strange rock formations.
Look at that sharp rock ! Great sensation with those dancing clouds above. Pure light is a gift ! Thks

Good view on this exelen shot. Light control is something to enphasize
17 Sep 2009 9:34am
Deep and colorfull. I love it.
17 Sep 2009 9:40am
Sky looks nice. Love the shot.

Tremendous view Grouser, are you a natural climber? (The leg won't be too long now.)

@Curly: More of a walker with a bit of scrambling. Would have gone for climbing if I had had the opportunity when younger maybe. My brother in law is a climbing addict and has taken me out a couple of times but I no longer have the flexibility of youth or the feeling of invulnerability either.
Wow,excellent find and as always a tremendous sky !!

Looks like a stack of American Pancakes to me (and I'm a geologist!). The clouds are lovely here...another fabulous shot..the weather looks particularly clear while you were here.

@MrsAmber: I'm pretty sure the rock is granite, so what caused it to form those layers impersonating a sedimentary rock do you think? There are more and bigger versions as we carry on down the mountain. One is lined up for tomorrow.
Wow Grouser, spectacular stratified rock, super find! and the background, is pretty darned divine too ;)

@Lorraine: Yes I'm glad we decided to do the traverse rather than return the way we came, even though it meant yomping off the path through tick country, further down, as we would have missed this and the ra6ther spectacular rock I aim to post tomorrow.
magnifique paysage !

beautiful composition, shot

Fabulous landscape !
17 Sep 2009 2:21pm
one word -- GORGEOUS. :)
17 Sep 2009 2:23pm
ok -- faaabulous processing also!! ;)
A fine shot of this rock with a difference in hardness apparently. It seems so strange to see a lone rock, like this one, sitting out there alone. Nice image.

Good evening, grouse,
perfect, this beautiful landscape with the small rock in the foreground. The white of clouds in the sky complete the whole picture. Best regards Christel

Spectacular landscape and sky, and a rock very interesting. Good shot.
17 Sep 2009 6:49pm
Very interesting sky. I love the way you've captured this.
17 Sep 2009 6:53pm
A nice extrusion you find there...a natural art you captured with art.
17 Sep 2009 7:18pm
I keep wanting brush aside the rock to see more of well rendered landscape : ] best...jerry

What an exhilarating panorama this sits within . . as much an experience as a photograph.
17 Sep 2009 8:41pm
LOL, it looks like a big Texas cow pie. ;-)) cool shot.
17 Sep 2009 11:00pm
Amazing shot... great details.. lovely color..!! Well done!!
18 Sep 2009 5:37am
the effect is oddly almost like a fish lens. the sky is unreal. the rock formation is awesome.
you have to tell me one day who builds these marvelous sets you are so fond of photographing.
18 Sep 2009 6:11am
This is one amazing image. Look at this detail. Just stunning.
18 Sep 2009 6:58am
WOW!!! this is spectacular! I simply love it. The sky is beautiful. Well done :)
18 Sep 2009 9:51am
This shot is so amazing! Where the landscape ends and the sky begins is focal point here. This natural beauty is awe inspiring. Thank you :)
