We agree oceans of steep clean granite are "beautiful."

There are places in nature where the formulae for beauty are not met, yet i find myself breathless, and inspired..

show us beauty, where some might not have seen it...

Interesting that we can find beauty in such forbidding landscapes.
Humans are primed to be attracted to places we can make an easy living.
Fabulous pics btw.

The picture of Angela is fascinating. It looks as if she's gazing into a watercolor painting background!
