Vedauwoo, near Laramie, Wyoming

there’s usually a sense of flow to granite, which is formed by solidified magma...factor in the cracking and sculpting of wind and weather, and all sorts of evocative shapes and figures emerge...the central one here seems a bit like a Lego pirate

Yes, a lego pirate. A great shot to keep the imagination working overtime. V

Sharp shot of this unusual heap of rock, David.
Just amazed at how those trees got to grow where they did!

All kinds of imagined sculptures in this giant rock formation! V

great the wind action on the granite

Very nice capture of this unusual rock formation! Wyoming has a lot of nice rock formations. Even though I live relatively close to them, I have yet to photograph them. I did not realize you came this far east. ~V~

super cool formation...kind of looks like Mt Rushmore if it melted!.....V :)

Yes, I see the Lego pirate! To me, this formation looks like the Rock Man form "The Point" by Harry Nilsson. What a great hike this must have been. V

Fantastic details! V!

I guess we have a kind of Rorschach game going on here (Koenig and I think alike here). I see a monkey face with a patch over one eye and an elongated hand sticking out. Otherwise, he is well enclosed and protected by surrounding boulders. The bare branched tree and the evenly blue shade of sky are pleasant additional features enhancing my Mr.Chimp.

What a fantastic rock formation, like Mother Nature's Rorschach Test. Very nicely composed and the trees add scale to this scene. "V"
