Some great pics in this thread. THe one below is from the Lake District (UK). There was a temperature inversion on the day, so by the time we were at 2000ft we were above all the cloud - a fantastic days walking that I won't forget!





Cheers,

Are those all on the Emerald isle? I am particularly curious about the formation in #5 (bottom row, left). What is that?

I guess I should include some images of our best known rock. Uluru is big, it is a 9.4 km walk around the base. It is getting harder to take photographs there as more areas get photography restrictions and you have to have a permit for commercial photography. Besides that it is a great place to visit and how many places do you see people line up with champagne in their hands to look at a rock?

Impressive. It reminds me of Capadocia nearby in Greece - as well as the Karst regions of Yangshuo in China, Halong Bay in Vietnam or Krabi in Thailand....and the mogotes of Cuba near Pinar del Rio.

Despite being an Aussie, here's one I took in the Garden of the Gods National Park in Colorado Springs, CO last year.

Back to Georgian Bay: The first two are in Bruce Peninsula National Park, where the colours are amazing, the third is down around the Penetanguishene or there-abouts.

Ok Mike, Here's round two.  The first is from Volgelsang Pass, Yosemite backcountry.  The other two are from Pointe Au Baril in the Georgian Bay.

Agawa Rock, Lk. Superior Provincial Park, on the north shore of Lk. Superior.

This sacred native site is special in the winter when snowshoes are needed to reach the massive rock wall. Along the trail, a warning sign
notes the loss of life when waves have washed the unaware viewers into the cold water. This is not Disney Land----The respect of native
tradition and skills are advised to view the faded pictographs which were painted there.

As a lot of these photos seem to be from Aus., I'll put one in by and Australian living in the States.  Here's Shiprock in NW New Mexico; Shiprock is the peak in the middle back; the rock in the front is one of the dikes radiating out from it.  Unfortunately I would only ever get there around noon.

I've just spent a week down the South Coast of NSW. These images are from Mimosa Rocks around 400 km south of Sydney. The three occasions I have visited the rocks have been around Easter (autumn in the southern hemisphere) and the weather has been cloudy and grey. The colour and shape of the rocks is something that has to be seen to be appreciated.
