A substantial amount of snow fell on this suburban open space area in central Colorado, but after a couple of days the weather warmed up and it all melted! It was pretty while it lasted. To see all of this week’s monochrome images, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
Land, Sea and Sky
Soon after leaving the beach of shells from yesterday’s post, the lighting turned to twilight.
Then the finale for the day on the shore of the Indian Ocean was streams of light falling through openings in the passing clouds.
This beach in Western Australia is made entirely of tiny shells instead of sand. It extends for many miles and the shells are up to 33 feet deep. The shells below the surface become compacted and in the past were mined and made into blocks for building. Today the beach is a protected site.
This meandering river, the Murchison, is one of the longest in Australia. Here it winds through a red rock gorge before flowing into the Indian Ocean. People say the rock formation in the center of the river resembles the head of a hawk.
