Very much so :shock: !
Wow. What a find.
Looks like a giant potato perched on that rock.
You chose a nice POV to bring the sunlit "potato-rock" against the dark rock face behind it. Balances your photo nicely, too. So yes:
It is all a question of balance!
My grand-daughter thought it looked like a potato too.
Law of the GF dictates I can't show one without the other;
An interesting shot......where?
love the textures, and the light is spot on
What he said....
A really nice shot !
What does B&W look like?
Devil's Punchbowl, Los Angeles County Park
My conversion skills are poor I'm afraid. My brother's after me to try it more often so I should learn more about how to do it.
i like it.
I have seen this sort of thing many times in real life and in other pictures.
how does nature put stuff there like that
(ive seen example just to be to have been moved by man)
late at night and very quietly
Goldren rock at Bago in Myanmar (Burma). That is a temple next to it.
Rock is covered with gold foil.
I can't find the specifics I have on this area, but basically, sandstone conglomerate (maybe from ancient oceans or alluvial fans) rose to near the surface and earthquakes (faulting) occurred creating cracks (jointing).
Over another "bztgzillion" years these formations moved around and eroded shaping the rounded formations seen here. The punchbowl is located on the San Andreas earthquake fault separating the Northern continental and Pacific plates.
An example of the sandstone conglomerate can be seen in the first grand-daughter photo.
This is way over-simplified but generally is what I remember from the info I have,... somewhere in my pile.
Here's a link explaining the creation of somewhat similar processes near the San Andreas fault in Joshua Tree National Park (roughly 100 miles east).
