Photohunters: Rock(s)

The photohunters theme this week is rock(s). I started with a shot from my garden with my frog sitting on a rock above. The next three shots are from a walk this past Sunday along a creek near my house. I like big rocks like these and when they are dry, I've been know to sit on them and read or write.
I wonder how the rock above ended up with those perfect holes which almost look like eyes to me.
The next shot was taken in Duke gardens of rocks and a small waterfall.The last two shots were taken at Linville Falle, NC. There are a lot of rocks there.I love rocks so I could go on forever. I literally have thousands of photographs of rocks but this seems like a good one to stop with.

I too love rocks and didn't know what the theme was...Do you think I could just show my head as I have 'rocks' in my head lately? LOL..

CRIZ LAI said...

Ok... I'm not going to kiss that frog. LOL! Anyway, I'm kind of a nature person too. I love to sit by those rocks and drift myself to dream land. :P

Happy Friday Carver.

I love rocks too. I had to restrain myself to just post one today.

I love all your rocks especially if water is running/falling through/over/around it.

Happy weekend too.

This is a great collection of rock photos Carver. Rocks and water seem to go together don't they?

Have a great weekend.

Ascender Rises Above said...

wow - the falls are amazing. I have not seen something like that. I thought the holes looked like dual belly-buttons. ;-)

SnoopyTheGoon said...

A beautiful series of rocks. I wonder about these holes too. Drilling for oil, maybe ;-)

Have a great weekend!

Christi said...

I love pictures of rocks and pictures of water, thanks so much for posting so many great pics of both. These are great!

Patricia said...

Oh, my, Carver. Your rock photos are gorgeous, but you know, that frog belongs on Pollywog Creek! =)

I'd love to sit on a rock by a creek in the shade with a good book, too. Perfectly delightful.

Hope your week is perfectly delightful, as well.

marta said...

I love the different rocks you found. The slabs where you write looks so peaceful and inspiring. Have a great weekend.

kaye said...

all your shots are beautiful. my photo hunt is here Thanks

diXymiss said...

Lovely series, Carver. I can't think of a better place to sit and read or relaX than a warm flat rock by the waters' edge... You have an impressive photo collection to choose from! I love rocks too and had a hard time selecting only a few to post ~ too many choices!

June said...

Those waterfall shots are lovely!

Starnitesky said...

You have a beautiful place to walk near your house, I like your frog!

rdl said...

jenny said...

I think i'd love to sit amongst those rocks and read and write, too. Have a nice week!

Kim said...

Amazing pictures of rocks! But I have to say that the first one of your frog is my favorite! Too cute.

I have mine up...not as interesting as yours but it's up.

Also if I may be so bold to ask...I've entered a photo contest and while you are over visiting would you please vote for me? It would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great rest of your weekend.

srp said...

I would think the holes would be from water but if this is vertical... then wow... who knows?! Lovely rocks, so many shapes and sizes. My hunt is up HERE.

david mcmahon said...
