A couple more from me too! Quite agree, these bones are lovely to behold, but Normhead wants to add a chilling factor too.

Halloween is coming. ( Or "hollow weenie" as we called it when I was a kid.)

It might be unwise to laugh at the dead at this time of year.

Noel, that last picture reminds me of some of the rocks around here. I'm no geologist, so I don't know what it's called, but maybe this is the same type of rock? They have the same cubic cleavage.



(cleavage... he he)

Found some "bony" shots from a few years back.

Lovely examples of the "Earth's Bones" here everyone!

I've been spending much of what shooting time I get trying to capture the texture and complexity of the bedrock around here. Here's one from this fall of extensively fissured gneiss where it outcrops at the river:

One of earth's vertebra at night. See the spinous process?

Fun thread. Not sure why I'd missed it. Some contributions.

One from out west:



And one from not too far away in the shield country:



One a little farther north:




Changing continents, one of a particularly active seismic area (Makara Bay):



One closer to where I grew up - remnants of volcanoes past:



And something decidedly more active (Tongariro):



Apologies for the tilted horizons on some of these!

Thanks, Dave. I think it's more-or-less "Tessellated Pavement". There are miles and miles of white sand beaches in the bay and a few outcrops of these hard bits. I wish I knew the geology.

More amazing rocks, folks! Now here's a picture specially for Dave/Dadipentak -- a really "gneiss" outcrop being scaled by a research associate, professor, and climber. Badly depicted, unfortunately, because it's an old film shot badly reproduced.

"Worm Tubes" We used to joke about how fresh roadcuts had lots of fossilized tubes from giant worms.

I've noticed that too. Those historic worms must have been really big with very powerful teeth to bite through the rock like that We have some big worms here, the Giant Gippsland Earthworm, that can grow to be 3m long, but I don't think they are hard enough to drill through rock.
