Sky, Stone and Sea

This is another shot where I tried to blend stone, sea and sky into a single image - you can see my other attempt here.

These granite boulders can be seen on the walk up to the summit of Mount Amos in the Freycinet, Tasmania.

I like the way the clouds (sort of) point in towards a path of blue sky over the boulder.  But most of all I like the fact that this was taken on a great day, when both of my small people climbed a big hill - or even a small mountain!



You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday.

  4. I can't imagine a more perfect combination of what you were trying to achieve. Are you sure you didn't roll that stone there so it would be just right? LOL

  7. Permanence ... what a beautiful way to describe that which is permanent. I went over to see your other rock, water, sky compositon and was struck by it. Why not call the sky Permanence in Motion ... it is, after all, an extention of the oceans. It is the constant exchange of water between the oceans and the skies that gives us life. They are one in the same. Your pictures and thoughts are so thought provoking ... I love it. And here's to your two small people who may have only just begun their climbing of high hills (or small mountains, as the case may be). They have much to look forward to with you at the helm.

  9. It almost looks like a scene from our High Sierras although that tree doesn't quite fit in. I like it.

  24. That is quite a huge boulder. I love the blues of the sky and lake. It looks like the clouds are pointing to the boulder. I am glad the young ones like hiking. They sleep well at night don't they. MB

  26. I have a picture of a boulder very like that in Utah -- and a second funny one of Bill and our (grown) son pretending to try to push it off it's base. (Your picture is too good to make a joke of.)

  27. I love everything about this photo!
    That looks like a big beautiful crescent shaped beach in the background.
