Faces In the Rocks


On a previous trip to Nares Inlet Gerard Leduc and I were walking the shoreline exploring for photo opportunities. Nares Inlet is part of Georgian Bay. I had parked my Ford Escape in the parking lot of Springhaven Lodge. As we walked the shoreline Gerard pointed out an interesting rock structure that jutted out into the bay. It had the shape of an Indian head. This was pretty cool. In my travels I have come across many such faces created by Mother Nature. Whether human or animal they are out there if you look. They are also called the faces of the Grandfather by native people.

I set my tripod up for the best angle to portray this feature. The water had a blue color that would really make the head stand out. The rock formation had a lot of detail from the colors available to the rock formations themselves. There was a clump of small rocks that I used for my foreground to add depth. If you look closely you will see a small brownish  rock in a depression that gives the impression of an eye on the head.

Well that is it for this week. Thank you for stopping by. Until next time happy trails.
