Desertscape: Rock formations (6 images to enjoy)

I have a draw to rocks and rock formations as much as the sky,clouds, water, trees or flowers. Much like the why’s re the attraction to the sky or a river, I can’t clearly explain the draw. The interest in rock formations varies with size, angles and lines, scale, shapes and colors. Whether it is shelter, respite from the wind, the sun, a vantage point or high ground, it attracts.

In Joshua Tree NP, the rock formations were most often a draw to the rock climbers. Being one that may get part way up, my problem is getting down…so I don’t venture to far up a rock pile, let alone a vertical face.

Anyway, the contrast of rock formations in a desertscape is  always fascinating. Maybe you have that same interest as well.

    Again, another beautiful post! I even love to collect small rocks with special looks (to me). So I’ve brought about 20 small rocks with me from Sri Lanka. 🙂
