  • am i the only one seeing a woman’s head here? :D

  • i’m with Rian. i was sure this was a woman’s head. good thing you included a description. the photograph and your description and Rian’s question remind me of the time i tried to photograph a natural bridge in Yoho National Park. i found it impossible to convey space. all this aside i like the bits of orange/yellow on the right and how they stand out in that blue/gray.

  • @michele@rian I totally do not see what you guys are seeing in this! :) It could have just been that I was there I guess. This whole is really, really small. Like a half inch or an inch in diameter. Pretty cool though. Water totally created it.
