the whale

a closer view of the boulders mentioned in the previous image (boulders in view). further research has explained that this series of boulders used by the ‘bouldering’ community is found on shelf beach within the halfway log dump area of the bruce peninsula national park.

they all have names: the crab, cedar boulder, turtle. Apparently, they all have names. the whale is indeed evident. šŸ˜‰

rocky shoreline

having finished at the lookout tower, we headed back to the motel for some breakfast. we then packed the car up as we were going to head home later in the day. we had scheduled a place to visit in another part of the bruce peninsula national park: halfway log dump.

the car parked, and the fee paid, we took the roughly 1km trail to the site… what splendour! a pebble beach greeted us and further west along the shoreline, were rocks and boulders. Apparently, there is something called bouldering (rock climbing on smaller rock formations and large boulders) and this place is renowned for that. this is a shot due west of the pebble beach.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found these two trees at the waterfront.

white tanks morning

White Tanks Morning

off the white tanks campground in joshua tree national park is found the arch rock nature trail. the main attraction is indeed arch rock itself, but hiking in the vicinity will expose you to huge granite boulders and rock formations. this is but a sampling of the landscape in this area of the park on a beautiful california desert morning this past may.

Boulders And Trees

the arizona snowbowl ski resort is located on the san francisco peaks just north of flagstaff.Ā A lazy walk on some alpine meadows yielded this photograph of boulders and trees on this late afternoon in may – the warm sunset glow lighting them up.
