Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Curious Forms and Shapes

On a recent walk along the beach with my wife I made some unusual discoveries. Guided by the theme ‘Curious Forms and Shapes’ I did not have to stretch the imagination to see a colossal head of stone above a hollow steaming under the burning afternoon sun. Then I viewed a craggy mountain created by an old tree stump, which was stretching into the blue sky above. Then I discovered a witch lying in the sand with her long nose sticking out and a striped cape covering head and shoulder. As you can see, all is a matter of perspective. All of these shots I took while lying down. Enjoy.

    Pleasantly pictoresque, Peter! 🙂
    Especially the 2nd one attracts my attention.

      Indeed! All we need to do is open our eyes to marvel at the wonderful world she created.

    A huge head, a witch, and a stump-mountain, that’s a very fun expedition! Good eye. 🙂

      Thanks, Robert! As I pointed out, seeing things in a different and entirely new light is often due to a change of perspective. Lying down on your belly with your camera ready to shoot opens up an entirely new world.

      Yes, the objects I captured appear to be somehow otherworldly. Thank you, Brigit!

    I am thinking the last one is the witch. The middle one looks like a goth castle. The first one a sand giant face.
    Love these Peter! Wonderful texture with these photos.

    Perfectly illustrates that everything is a matter of perspective. 😉 Wonderful shots, Peter! This reminded me of a trip to the south of Spain where I saw similar odd shapes in the mountains. 😊
