the cracked egg…

Seeing big boulders that are rounded and weathered with time is pretty cool. Sometimes you get lucky enough to see ones that are so weathered that they are cracked in half with the process. Here this giant is not cracked but also coated in lichen, add a dash of twilight warmth and things can look pretty special.

  1. That looks pretty cool Toneman!

  2. Ah yes, this fella has done me well over the years but never shot it with digital. Nce shot mate

    • Thanks AB, I know what you are saying, like yourself and many others I’d been past this spot countless times over many years and it wasn’t until earlier this year that I finally shot something I liked with it.

  3. At the risk of being analytical to the point being anal, one thing about this that grabs me is that the rock which is something hard, has water (softness) on one side, and grass (softness) on the other side.
    And then the ‘split’ in the rock contrasts to it’s hardness as well. The title cracked egg is funny – perfect. : )

    The different natural textures creates such a richness.

    • hi Mat,
      Thanks for such a thoughtful and indepth analogy of the image, you are right about a lot of things here, its quite a complex scene and image when you look closer.

  4. i’ve been playing catch-up on your last few posts, they are all so beautiful
    i like your title for this piece, it really goes well

    • hi Chloe,
      Thanks for taking the time to catch up on my blog. I’ve been a bit flat with image titles and descriptions of late and this one i took a lighthearted approach so it’s great to read that you like it.


  5. Terrific pic. You titled this very well and I love the color of the rock…not only its sheer size but the color makes it stand out against all the other elements.

    • Hi edith,
      I’m glad you appreciate the title too. You are spot on about the size it’s actually a very large boulder to be just sitting there.
