  1. At a time when all I seem to think about are leaves and color and the seasons, it was a nice switch to move back to monchrome and rocks 🙂 I love that Seal Beach picture. Now THAT is a ROCK.


  2. OmG your second photo of the Big Rock near Seal Beach is absolutely beautiful! Love the crispiness of the picture and the ratio between the people and the rock! 😀


  3. Hi Cee, I was sure I didn’t have any rocks, but to my surprise, as I looked through my stash, I found a few rock photos. If not for you, they would have stayed in my stash.
    Your third photo down is my favorite. I like the abstract image.
    Blessing to you and yours,
