Royal National Park (6/6) - the sacred heart


Earth's beating heart
spewed by transforming fire
into the cold light of day
then desiccated by forces
beyond temporal control.

I've always been in awe of the power of water to change things. These photos exhibit that power very well.

The Sacred Heart...excellent title, superb description, such fine images. You bring us so close to the breast of the earth that we can hear that sacred heart beating.

Every one of them is wonderful especially the palette and the last one reminds me of large sea mammals lounging on the beach.

Beautiful! They seem to flow like the water does. I'm imagining the rocks as immense.

Truly amazing picture!

The shapes etched into those rocks is incredible - water is always a surprisingly strong force! What are those sac-like things?

I'm afraid that leaf wasn't really falling - it had caught on a thread of cobweb so it was just swaying gently in the breeze in front of me :)

Great beach stone collage! Cool - groovy in fact!

The first photo is spectacular and those with the plants are stunning!

Kitty, the sac-like thing is the air-bladder of what we in Australia call a "blue bottle" and what others call a Portuguese-Man'o'War. Their sting can be most debilitating but it comes from long ribbons that float out from the body not from this air-sac.

As always you find the most wonderful things to show us. These are remarkable. I love the beach and everything that washes up. Here on our gulf , not these wonderful finds however.

I was looking at the first pic again and realized what a beautiful tank decoration this could be! I'm a tropical fish hobbyist, by the way... :-)

Mirela said...

Wonderful shots and details! I'm just wondering what that slimy-looking thing is in the photo 2.jpg...

I love the details you're showing in all these photos. I was at the beach recently but it was too cold and I was not dressed for it.

Now I wish I had spent some time scouring through the area looking for things to photograph.

Amazing photos. I just love the rocks - each one so different in colour and texture. And among all the dryness, there is life - little green plants.
Cheers.

You have captured the rock textures and colours superbly, even the ikky blue bottle. I'm running behind with visits this week as I have been asked to fill in for an absent teacher for two weeks and I get too tired for blogging. Its disgusting how soon one looses stanima when the pressure is not there. By the way love your title and words too.

These rocks are stunning, such textures and colours and a beautiful poem.
