I drive by this rock outcropping quite regularly. It always struck me as looking a little bit like a frog getting ready to jump. That’s just like us humans though. Always seeing things were nothing really exists.

Another vista of interesting rock outcroppings in the Santa Monica Mountains at sunset. There is always something interesting to see and photograph in the interior of the mountains. A drive or walk reveals something new at each turn. #nature #mountains

I took this photo while visiting the Antelope Valley Indian Museum in Palmdale, California, one of my favorite museums. The surrounding deserts and buttes are so striking and intense it is almost hard to decide what to photography when you are there.

A Minute in Sicily - Scala dei Turchi from My Word with Douglas E. Welch

 

From Wikipedia …

“The Scala dei Turchi (Italian: “Stair of the Turks”) is a rocky cliff on the coast of Realmonte, near Porto Empedocle, southern Sicily, Italy. It has become a tourist attraction due to its unusual white color, as well as by its mention in Andrea Camilleri’s series of detective stories about Commissario Montalbano.

The Scala is formed by marl, a sedimentary rock with a characteristic white color. It lies between two sandy beaches, and is accessed through a limestone rock formation in the shape of a staircase, hence the name. The latter part of the name derives from the frequent raids carried on by Moors.

In August 2007, the municipality of Realmonte applied for the inclusion of the Scala dei Turchi (together with the nearby Roman Villa Aurea) in the UNESCO Heritage List.”
