Sunday Selections ... Textures and Colours in Nature ... Rocks


Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim or Frogspondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.

The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through Life. The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.

This might be the last in this series, I'll have to go back through my photos to see if I can find any more photos that fit into the Textures and Colours in Nature theme. 

This time the subject is rocks, although in truth the Devonian Reef is an old limestone reef in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. It covers hundreds of miles and has three national parks that shelter in its presence, Geikie Gorge, Tunnel Creek and Windjana National Parks. As I hope the photos show, it changes colour throughout the day and throughout the length of the reef itself. Sometimes mostly dark grey, other times with splashes of brilliant orange.

Then there are some shots of the gorges in Karijini National Park in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. Beautiful maroon and orange tones scattered with spinifex green.

Towards the bottom are the greys and oranges of the South Coast national parks.

A few other bits and pieces are also thrown in, just to keep you interested.

Rocks, no, they are not boring at all, they are beautiful sculptures created by nature itself.

    1. Thanks EC, I have really enjoyed going back through my photos to choose some to share in the series. The Devonian Reef is something I feel really blessed to have been able to visit. Hope you are having a restful Sunday. xxx

  2. Love the nature made sculpture. That first fossil looks like a possum, and the patterns in rock a bit further down - there's a face in there.
    Rocks are among my four favourite things, the others being trees, oceans and rivers.

  4. Fantastic photography and fantastic rocks, particularly like those in Windjana Gorge but they are all beautiful and different as well.
    Sorry I'm a little late viewing blogs this week. Put it down to old age and not lack of enthusiasm. xx
