PhotoHunt: Chipped


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Chipped"

MJ and I went to a landscaping place awhile back to get ideas and started looking at the rocks. Can you imagine the size of the boulder these might have been "chipped" from?

As always, please click on the photo to see all the details and "feel" the textures!

Oh! And thanks to everyone who gave me pocket camera advice, last week. I finally went with the Canon Powershot SD1100 IS Digital Elph. I'm still playing, but so far, I'm pretty happy with it. If you scroll down to my posts of the "Back Forty" and the Monarch butterfly chrysalis, I took those with that camera. I love being able to shove it in my pocket and walk around with it at the ready!

Let's see if Mister Linky's with us properly this week, shall we?

Wow, these are naturally chipped and the colors are amazing :)

Aileni said...

Now I am wondering what that stone is - is sedimentary rock of some ilk - but what a great colour.

June said...

A good choice...both for the theme and for the camera! There's a lot to be said for going small and the Elph's among the best of them...

YTSL said...

Chipped or not, those are beautiful rocks! :)

Congratulations on the camera. I know my wife enjoys her Digital ELPH a lot.

I love the colors and textures in those stones. Nice pick for the theme. I went with an aged choice for my contribution this week.

I have chipped rock in mine, too. the textures and striations in rocks are always unique.

If you have time, please check out my photo hunt for the week.

Very nice! Expensive, I imagine... but they sure would look cool in any yard!

They're fabulous! Would look just right in our garden!
