Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #142: Traces of Time

“Traces of Time” is my pick for Ann-Christine’s “You Pick It”.

Glen Canyon Rainbow Bridge. 234 feet (71 m) and the top is 42 feet (13 m) thick and 33 feet (10 m) wide, is made from sandstone originally deposited by wind as sand dunes, during the end of the Triassic  and the Jurassic periods.

The vertical, matte black streaks are formed by water and organic material flowing over the sandstone during times of rain. A black horizontal line bisecting the Glen Canyon wall represents a freshwater stream.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona. An evolving millions upon millions of years where flowing water and winds carved this sacred wonder.

The rock formations of the Tent Rocks, New Mexico are the products of volcanic eruptions that occurred 6 to 7 million years ago and over time, left pumice, ash, and tuff deposits over 1,000 feet thick, then weathering and erosion of these layers has created canyons and tent rocks.

Natural world has stories to tell; they are written on the ground, mountains, rocks, trees, and rivers. Miracles.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of geometry. I certainly have learned to view various forms and shapes of geometry.

Ann-Christine invites us to join the “You Pick it” theme allowing us to choose our own topic. She shows us different faces of Anemone Hepatic, amazing photos of this special flower. We are looking forward to seeing your photos and stories. Please use the tag and link to Ann-Christine’s original post.

Happy Easter!
