Over time, the sandstone shores of our region have been eroded by the elements, producing all manner of fascinating textures, patterns and visual oddities. I’ve written before about the natural art gallery you can find here and its strange shape-shifting tendency.
When the tide is right, you can find some pretty interesting “faces” along many stretches of shoreline in the Gulf Islands. This one, off Portland Island, jumped out at me when I was rowing our dinghy there this summer – though I’m not sure whether its open mouth was welcoming me or warning me off.
I do love a good stone face, these ones are having quite a dramatic looking day for stone heads!
Dramatic indeed! Thanks for the visit and comment!
Oh, that is a really good one Laurie! I think it’s yawning…it’s eyes are like slits…maybe it just woke up?
Ha! Hadn’t thought of that possibility! Thanks for the comment, Sherry.
I love when you can see faces and bodies in nature like this. Haha I hope it was a welcoming face for you that day. Great shot!
Thanks Courtney! I chose to accept it as a welcome. 🙂
I’m glad!! 🙂
