More Sandstone Weathering

Weathered but square sandstone boulder Weathered Sandstone and Pillow Formations

Finishing off the sandstone weathering theme, here are my final two images from my afternoon crawling over the rocks at Del Mar Point.  The first image was rather striking to me in how the large square boulder looks like someone just placed it where it has probably lied for millennia.  It just seems to fit perfectly in that spot.  The final shot shows the pitted sandstone and in the distance you can also see the more “pillow-like” formations out in the ocean. So I hope you enjoyed my afternoon amongst the sandstone rock formations of Del Mar Point.  I certainly encourage anyone who enjoys rock-hopping to spend an afternoon or two out here.  You can reach this area by taking Helm off of Leeward Road on Sea Ranch. It’s a short walk to the rocks from the end of Helm.

Equipment: Nikon D810; Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 lens; Oben Tripod

    Yes, looking at this series was really enjoyable,. I honestly could not choose a favorite between these last two. But if I had to chose one, it would be the second one, albeit reluctantly..

    • Thanks, Chris…I’ve enjoyed experimenting with B&W, especially with these rock images. They give me such great texture toward with, and shooting at 14mm really gets you up close and personal.
