Between A Rock And A Hard Place


I took over 100 photos yesterday at Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.
Of these this particular one I found most intriguing.


Just a huge rock with a 'nursing log' in front of it.
The log looks like an animal...maybe a wolf.


And of course I had to 'play' with it a little......
just because.

  1. I think the larger log has a "head" like a deer, super playing. Cheers, Jean.

  2. Only 100, Jim? Must have been a short visit! LOL... Just kidding...

    Yes, that log looks like an animal. And it looks like a wolf to me, too. Right down to the pointy ears!

  3. What grabs my attention is the scarred rock face and that mossy touch of green on the log.

    1. So much texture here, Pat. I liked how it all seems to work well together.

  5. My eyes go right to the rock! I can't identify it for sure, but I think it is from the Meguma Group, and it could be half a billion years old!!!!! So cool! Thanks, Jim!

    1. Thanks for this Louise! I was hoping you could identify it! That makes me feel quite young!! lol I noticed the 'layering' which had been tilted upwards probably during or at the end of the last ice-age, right? Help me here Teach!

    2. Hi Jim! Still catching up from my computer misadventures this week ~ helped along by our internet being down for most of the afternoon! LOL! What else are you going to do. As to your question ~ the Meguma is one messed up group of rocks. If it's bedrock rather than just a big, loose random chunk of bedrock is important. Large chuck ~ could have been plucked out during the last ice age. Otherwise ~ a half billion years is a long time, give or take a few tens of millions! LOL! Lots happened!

  6. Wow, Fundy Blue's comment is amazing! Did you know your 100 photographs had captured such a relic? Interesting to compare the two photos, Jim. Both bring out that animal nicely.

    1. Hi Carol, good to see you.
      To be honest I had no clue as to its age but thought it would be pretty old just by its appearance. Yes, that 'nursing log' has taken on a life of its own. regards to Bill.

  7. Neat rock - I wonder what (if anything) lies deep within those layers. Nice composition, Jim!

    1. That's true John! Maybe that rock shifted unbeknownst to Mr.Frog!!

  9. Nature is the best artist. It is our job to witness the beauty, and make up images from what we see. It's a wolf.
