Meandering with camera…
I suspect this lacy pattern in the rocks was formed when the concretions dropped out. Check back to a previous post for an explanation of what concretions are.In heaven, all the interesting people are missing.
― Friedrich Nietzsche
This is certainly interesting…fascinating for sure!
I just love finding stuff like this and then digging around to try to learn more about it.
This is fascinating Gunta! Where was this photo taken?
It was at Devil’s Kitchen, just beyond Face Rock on Beach Loop.

Love it. Could one create a rockery?
One perhaps ‘could’, but it’s part of a huge cliff on a public beach, so there might be obstacles. 🙂
That occurred to me ….. but only after I had commented 🙂
Still… a great idea!
That is a wonderful shot – you could get lost in the patterns.
I was certainly drawn to them.
Lava, or a giant sponge. You find the most fascinating things on your beaches!
Ain’t it wonderful? I love the stuff I find on the beaches.
Interesting, I’d be worried that some giant mutant insects had made the patterns and may still be lurking about. 😉
Chuckle. We had Sissy, the wonder-poodle with us to scare off any mutant insects! 😀
That is a fascinating pattern in the rocks. I would say limestone, but wrong area for that?
My understanding is that it’s a sort of “mudstone”… compressed mud or silt. The balls are formed around some foreign object by the tossing of waves and then they’re compressed when they settle. The balls seem to fall out first for the most part, with the softer silt melting from around them. The stuff in this shot was unique since it looks as though the balls may have melted first.
It’s so beautiful.
Pretty amazing stuff.
Really thrilling, makes me put on the Holmes Deerstalker hat, these graphics of what was, who did what and when. I’ve seen configurations like this in Carmel at the north side tidepools, and also in Big Sur. Little dinosaur tracks.
I can surely picture you in your Holmes Deerstalker hat. I also like to hunt around for answers and quite often the blogging community provides them. I am still “chewing” on your last post, hoping to find (make?) the time to reread and ponder it a bit more and perhaps comment. It’s not one to skim in a hurry.
Such lovely patterns, Gunta. I’m in full agreement with Nietzsche. 🙂
I couldn’t resist shooting those patterns on previous occasions, but this time the light was just right to do them justice. As for Nietzsche… funny how most descriptions of “heaven” come off as quite boring. 😉
Very true. I can’t see myself sitting playing a harp all day, and I definitely haven’t earned my halo. 😇
It looks like old lace.
Exactly what made me take the shot!
Amazing texture and patterns Gunta! 🙂
Even more so with the particular light I happened to catch.
Very cool (and educational to boot)!
How very nice… I get to educate the educator. Except I’m not absolutely sure of my facts.
Fascinating like all weathered rocks.
