Default Snail Picture

Hyun,

Just a curious question, nothing about photography:

Where did you take the snail picture, was it somewhere in
the Sierras, maybe around Yosimitee Park? The rock
reminds me of the granite of that area.

Regards, Herbert

Herbert,

OK, you're going to be disappointed with the answer. I found the snail in my backyard! It's a cement-type surface. I live in Southern California, so you weren't too far off as far as Yosemite goes! :lol:

Actually thats a sandstone rock. As you can see by the sand sized particles protuding from the rock. A granite would have a higher concentration of gravel sized particles of 2mm or greater in it.

Yosemity Rocks tend to also be lighter in color a bit more towards the gray rather than red or brown. As you can see here

Eh... did you see my reply above? No sandstone rock in my backyard, I'm afraid. :lol:

Hmmm cement type surface. Well either way it has sand sized particles that could possibly be considered a breccia that was probably cemented at somepoint. That does'nt look like it was a manmade cementation. But then again I dont have the rock in hand so its hard to observe with the help of a hand lense.
