Rock Abstracts (1)

In earlier posts (The Blue Lagoon and Porthgain) I referred to the slate quarrying in Pembrokeshire, South Wales.  At Abereiddy the exposed slate strata, coloured by weather and time, create patterns reminiscent of the works of the Post Impression and early Cubist painters.

I shall be posting a series of images derived from these rock surfaces in the coming weeks.

Scilly Rocks 7

In my introduction to Scilly Rocks 1 I mentioned the extraordinary granite outcrops on the Isles of Scilly.  This photo provides yet another example.  I recommend that you click the above link and, indeed, look in on the related images.  It is scarcely necessary to comment on the similarity of this rock formation to a giant tortoise.

Scilly Rocks 1

In addition to their natural beauty and evidence of earlier cultures  –  such as the standing stone on Gugh and various cysts and burial chambers from the Bronze Age  –  the Isles have an air of mystery about them.  Especially St Agnes.  Granite outcrops suggest strange creatures from a fantasy or mythological world  –  giant lizards, serpents, turtles, birds of prey  ………   You are never alone on St Agnes!
