An Appreciation of Stone (10)

posted, 09/24/06
Somewhere in Southeastern Ohio

300 million plus year-old sandstone formation. The younger sandstone at the top is harder than that below, accounting for the awesome overhang.

I also appreciate the interplay of light and shadow, something all designers should work for.
Though we rarely get to work at this scale. From the top of the ledge to bottom of the
“hollow” is over 90 feet.

    Thanks Orhan, it is one of my favorite places, I go back when I can. I’ll have some great winter pictures later.

    Beautiful! Similar structures can be found in the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois. I went there several years ago for a week of horseback riding/camping. It was both trecherous and breathtaking…especially when you ride your horse to the edge of a ravine with a 150 foot drop!
