Patterns


This interesting image was captured below Laxapana Waterfall. This is the effect of water running over this rocky surface for thousands of years.

It takes thousands of years to form the shape.

You need only couples of second to record it.

Gorgeous. It reminds me, quite a bit, of the Vale da Lua.
Love that shot!

Loshini said...

the powerful falls and this calm water is quite a glaring contrast! lovely swirls on the stone

I can see a sideways hippopotamus carved into the rock.

betchai said...

beautiful carving of nature that no man can equal. I always am fascinated to see the power of water.

Kirigalpoththa said...

Amaris,
Yep..the fall and the rock formations are quite similar. But I think Vale da Lua Roack formations are more impressive than here!

Loshini,
I still do not know how those circular carvings are formed. quite surprising isn't it?

Bern,
Oh yeah now I see the hippopotamus! Good observation :)

Betchai,
Yep ..surely..no man equal the feats of nature!

Thanks all for your comments!

Do you follow cricket? I don't follow the game, but I watch the news. One of the NZ players is not going for the world cup. Isn't it sad?
