Rocks don’t fit in with the traditional concept of beauty, and are rarely considered photogenic by any means even in geological illustration. As necessary as they are, most people don’t find them particularly exciting. However, with strategic shooting and a bit of careful editing, it’s possible to give new life to an under-appreciated artistic subject. The submerged formation above, for example, is reminiscent of a lava flow, while the colors and unusual angles of the cut-away below add depth and interest.
