Geological detail

From yesterday's walk on the "secret" beach. I'm enjoying the colors, the jagged cracks, and the texture. The rocks are all wet, so even in overcast light they have a shine to them that a polarizing filter doesn't cut through entirely. The solution? Don't photograph smooth surfaces; look for the texture. Must make a note to return in July when things might be drier. ©Carol Leigh

Great photo. Looks like an aerial shot of the San Andreas Fault line.

It DOES look like an aerial shot of the San Andreas Fault, doesn't it? Thanks for the comment. -- Carol Leigh
