Picture This #202 ~ Rocks

What a great theme, Anders! 



Agawa Bay, Lake Superior

Canada, Lake Superior, Agawa Bay.


Agawa Pictographs

This is a rock face that is on Agawa Bay. The rock below slopes 120º to a sheer drop-off into the lake. Perhaps on the cliff you can see red ochre paintings done by the Ojibway people, a fish and a sea snake. The gold is lichen and the other colors are natural rock. Acid rain has gravely faded these paintings and others in this location. They are difficult to photograph as there is no railing and if you slip you and your camera roll into the cold deep water.




Sea anemone

A sea anemone makes its home on the Florida gulf rocks. It is underwater.

  2. Beautiful and serene seascape.

    Impressive rockface.

    The wonderful intricate design of a living thing stands out against that rock.

  3. Hi Benni !! Three wonderful shots for Anders' theme. That first shot, of Lake Superior, is just beautiful. Each time I see one of your shots of it makes me want to visit it. Yes, I can see the pictograms made by the Ojibway people. I can see a fish, and (I think) a deer. The shot of the sea-anemone is just fabulous!! Definately my fave!!

  4. I love the third one, what a lovely contrast with the anemone. A colourful rock and a seascape framed with rocks, wonderful.

  5. Thank you all. I am glad I may be tempting people to do the Circle Route (as it's called) around Lake Superior. The cabins/lodging are few and far between but camping is wonderful.

  6. Such a shame about the acid rain. I really like the rocky framing in the top photo, it adds interest to the little rocky island. The last shot is very special, it really appeals to my love of water :)

  11. Thank you all. I gently touched that anemone and it tasted my finger, a kind of sticky feeling.
