Macro shot of rocks at Gantheaume Point, Broome, Western Australia.

I think it looks like the ocean in the foreground, hills in the background and the setting sun in the distance…. but that’s just my impression :)

My good friend (and outstanding photographer) Tania spotted this rock first and it’s a testament to her generosity that she called me over so I could photograph it too!! Thank you, Tania!!

    OH! WOW! Mieke – have you found a treasure trove? What great colours and patterns.

  • Thanks, Jan! My friend Tania actually saw it first and called me over to photograph it… amazing isn’t it? Nature constantly astounds me…

    Love this one! Fabulous!

  • Thanks, Mel!! (The countdown is on! I’m wearing my brand new hiking boots inside at the computer… hopefully they will be ‘worn in’ by this time next week when I touch down in Tassie!!)

    LOL….lets hope they get LOTS of wear before you get there. Make sure you waterproof them too! :)

  • They’re supposed to be waterproof, but I bought some spray for them anyway. Will do that after I take them off tonight. A fellow told me I should get them completely wet and then wear them til they’re dry (so they mould to my feet) but I can’t imagine it’s a clever idea to saturate waterproof boots?? I think I’ll just wear them lots :)

    Amazing these shapes Mieke. So many waves locked in place. A bit like the sand painting in a bottle.

  • Thanks, Dick! It’s layers and layers of sedimentary rock, I guess. Who knows how old? And yeah, probably carved out by hundreds of years of waves as the tides went in and out…

    In your climate trying to get boots dry by wearing them would probably cause you to end up with some sort of fungal infection, lol! I’ve been trying to get Scott’s “waterproof” boots dry for the last 4 days, so I can add the spray. They’ve been allowed to soak up the water for too long, and will still need a couple of days to dry out totally, so yeah, I’d spray the boots, but also keep wearing them lots. :D And do LOTS of climbing to get those thighs and calves ready! :D (Don’t say I didn’t warn you….) muhahahaaa

  • The calves are in for a beating. You know I wrote that journal about going for a run? My calves were wrecked for a week. I plan to take plenty of anti-inflammatory tablets….

    Hmmm, I quite like that one. Reminiscent of an Aboriginal painting – or even something a child might paint. Those layers look like deposits of sediment laid down over the years. The planet remains a work in progress, yes?

  • I agree with you wholeheartedly, Gary :) I love that idea (the planet being a ‘work in progress’)… that totally resonates with me!
