sphinx

continuing further into timna park, we come to the rock formation known as the sphinx. alas, because of lighting conditions and the realization that i was on a strict ‘time budget’, this was the only vantage point that made sense…

spiral rock

about 1/2 an hour north of eilat, in the very south of israel, is timna park. it is set in the beautifully magnificent timna valley of the negev desert. the area is rich in copper ore and has been mined for thousands of years. amongst the hiking trails, the various buildings and remnants of copper mines that make up the park, is a collection of natural land and rock formations: natural sculptures, if you will. for that day, that was my mission – to discover and photograph the major landmarks.

alas, once again lighting was not on my side: it was clear blue skies for as far as the eye could see; that and the dust which hung in the area as we looked due east. with that in mind, we took a cursory glance along all the roads of the park to get a sense of the majesty we had seen in pictures. by the latter half of the afternoon, as the sun was getting lower, i set out to photograph those natural sculptures: the first such stop is spiral rock.

mystery vessel revisited

Mystery Vessel Revisted

now living in the area, this mystery vessel visible from the qew (queen elizabeth way) stationed in jordan harbour near st. catharines, ontario, is readily accessible.

there does not seem to be a definitive story about this vessel. apparently it is (was) a replica of la grande hermine; the carrack that brought jacques cartier to this continent in 1535.

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.

arch rock at dawn

Arch Rock At Dawn

the next morning of my overnight stay in twenty-nine palms, i ventured out again into the joshua tree national park to see and capture the famous ‘arch rock’. the arch rock trail is found nestled in the white tank campground and scattered about are rock formations in all shapes and sizes.

ocean rocks

Ocean Rocks

the ocean’s waves never stop, but they do have different levels of intensity as they do their thing… with the tide coming in stronger and stronger, i took frame after frame of this scene and did not know what i had until i reviewed them all in the digital darkroom. as with my previous image, above the crowd, this was photographed in the late afternoon as dusk was approaching, allowing for slower shutter speeds to accentuate the water movement and rolling waves around the stationary rocks.
