Thanks for sharing!

Hello Clara. Hercules huh...:-) I am so glad that is is a rock. Awesome perspective against the spotless blue sky and the autumn leaves in the backdrop. Thanks for sharing this interesting rock. Well done and have a wonderful weekend. Regards. Jusni

A terrific "cudgel" indeed Clara, thanks for this nice scene my friend.

Hi Clara

Nice capture - again excellent low-down POV showing the enormity of this formation upwards. Is this place also of spiritual significance (the shape suggests it might be!)?

TFS and Best

Hi Clara,

I am trying hard not to comment on the "interesting" shape of the rock - well hey that's all nature too I guess! :-)

Really good picture - fascinating looking place.

TFS, Doug

I would agree with Goldy here Clara. You really make simple things look beautiful...like most of your photographs are shots of simple trees but have wonderful colors in them...things that a normal eye would miss. again in this one...great colors and POV.

Keep sharing
