    The fractal theory taught me that all things in nature resemble something else in nature – in this case, nature resembles a man-made city!

  2. You have the ability to come up with the nicest pictures. I love the texture these rocks display. Nature is certainly powerful!

    Thank you for once again providing us with a thought-provoking, beautiful picture. I have no ability to hold these images for any length of time in my mind, but I do enjoy returning to them again and again on your blog.

    Thanks for allowing me to rediscover nature’s beauty!

    The green grass and the blue sea; the ragged rock and the flowing waves… and a bench amid all the contrasts. Wonderful.

      Stef, Your comment reads like poetry, I love “the ragged rock and the flowing waves” —

      At the time I was so taken with the odd fragmented crystalloid rocks that I never even noticed there was a bench there–
      and never have noticed in all the times I’ve seen the photo again until just now when you point it out!

        Isn’t it amazing what we do (and don’t) see? One of the many reasons I value the insight of others – they can show me ‘obvious’ things that I obviously neglect! 🙂

        It was said (I think) in a very different context, but it occurs to me that “in union there is strength” —
        and wisdom, and insight.

        Also, that 1 + 1 = more than 2.

    I believe my husband was telling me that there is a similar type of rock formation in Ireland. Neat shapes, and nice capture 🙂
