Heart of Stone

By hwatt  
Cummingstown, Moray, Scotland.

Cummingstown has some remarkable and highly colourful sandstone cliffs that are a mecca for climbing enthusiasts. At low tide and you only have about an hours window to play with you can find some of the sandstone caves. It is inside these that I have found the most unbelievably saturated colours of gold, red and green rock all intermingled together and lit on one side solely by the daylight at the cave mouth. It is geologically stunning amd photographically heaven sent.

Wonderful stuff, though the heart is maybe a pebble or two short.

Brilliant idea and what a lovely result
Beautiful colours and grand feel to this one Ian. Could just imagine finding thissight which wouldn't be out of place in a jewellers window display.

Aah tis a natural find. I never alter the position of a single stone or pebble. That by the way is a personal philosophy not one I expect anyone else to follow.
