Rocks Along the Coast
I love the patterns and shapes that rocks have, particularly along the coast. This week we were walking along one of our favourite trails, in Cape Forchu, NS, and I spotted this bunch of rocks which have an interesting formation and formation history, and with the snow made what I thought were interesting patterns.
I’ve always loved rocks, and next month a photo of rocks I took will feature prominently in a new project (that’s called a teaser), but I have many, many images of rocks.
As the sea and the wind drive against the rocks, sometimes the forces wear the rocks smooth, sometimes the action strips the looser sediment and leaves jagged cuts and large boulders. Occasionally, a rock is cracked and we can see gemstones like amethyst.
To me rocks are all gems, the stuff the earth is made of, and worthy of study.
I can agree with philosophers on this one:
“I do not know how I may seem to others, but to myself I am only a small child wandering upon the vast shores of knowledge, every now and then finding a small bright pebble to be contented with.” Plato
