Mother Nature as an Architect

Prompt:   Lens and Pens – i phoneography challenge – architecture

A million years ago rivers of red hot lava flowed across the country I now call home.  Now the river runs with water and the cooled stacks of lava stone are a waterfall.

In the spirit of Ansel  Adams I have given the image below a slight greenish tinge – personally I think it creates a better depth of field.2014-10-18 13.45.43

– and here is a  colour image lately.  We haven’t had much rain lately so the water flow is reduced – the way the lava is stacked like huge building bricks is clearly visible.2014-10-18 13.45.34

    1. Yes it is. It happens in late January. I’ve never seen it but it does sound extremely weird – I’ve heard they wriggle up the rocks! 🙂

  1. You’ve created a strong tribute to Ansel Adams who we all owe such a debt of gratitude. He dedicated his life to Mother Nature, and educating others about her precious gifts. Your images honor his legacy. That’s a spectacular spot. Happy Photo Challenge.

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
