Sawn Rocks, in New South Wales, Australia, is an example of a volcanic rock formation called “organ-piping”–it’s easy to see why. On our way to see this formation, a mishap occurred and I’ll share with you the following quote from my travel journal: “Sad day. On our way to Mt. Kaputar NP, I accidentally locked the car key in the boot. The car was unlocked, but the inside latch wouldn’t work. We ended up being towed by a guy named Brian to a garage in Murrurrundi owned by a guy named Ashley. It took a full 24 hours to get the key out and we ended up staying across the street from the garage at a trucker hotel instead of Craigton Resort at the NP.”
All was well in the end and I even managed to take this shot on our abbreviated visit to the park. We had schedules to keep!
There is a chill in the air and leaves are beginning to fall along the path of a city walk in Frankfurt, Germany. Snug and secure beneath the arbor that still remains, it is a good day for a stroll.

Random twigs may reach out here and there to impede the progress of the arrow-straight wisps of water. But the falls continue to cascade down, down, down over the rock face of a gorge in eastern Australia.
Waves crash forcefully into a rock formation off the California coast year after year with no visible effects. Strong and firm, the rocks remain trusted seaside monuments. To see all the other images in today’s monochrome challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
Aside from serving as a setting for spooky fiction and a symbol of the American bucolic past, a covered bridge enjoyed a longer life because the exterior protected the wooden timbers of the passageway from the effects of the sun and inclement weather. This is one of many historic bridges in the New England region of the United States. To see all the other monochrome images in today’s challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
As a Californian familiar with the hot politics of coastal accessibility, I reveled in the wild stretches of Australian beach along the Indian Ocean. This one shows only a slight hint of human habitation.
