I can feel the stone's texture ...

I can touch the rough surface of the stones with my hands...

Perfectly framed and capured dear Ian.

Warmly. Füsun

If only stones could speak.... but they can! Have a very good start into your week Ian. Love, Maja

My dear friends, Füsun and Maja,

I can feel the stone's texture ... it caresses my fingers with its living;

I can touch the rough surface of the stones ... my hands tell me it was ground to rock flour in the crucible beneath the ice;

I can frame it with my lens ... it excites my senses with its palette of colours;

I can listen to its stories punctuated with cracks, groans, tosses and swashes ... it speaks about me and you when we receptively listen.

Hi! Ian

It would take another million years to make them smooth so that we could seat on it comfortably.

Cheers from Hong Kong, Jeff

Greetings and thanks Jeff. It may be surprising how quickly the growth of algae on these rocks could make it very comfortable for you.

Anyway, it is a very restful location.

Hi Gondor,

Thanx. I am pleased that you are enjoying my gallery. I guess you will be exploring more of the Pacific images in it as you prepare for your trip into the beauty of the Pacific.

Best wishes,
