Gosh, I am away for less than a week, and look at all the amazing rocks that appear! Perhaps I should stay away longer!!!

Just a quick reminder that there's only a few more days to add your "pebble" to the "rockpile!"

Boulders at the base of the American Falls in Niagara Falls, New York. This was taken from an observation area that comes up from the base of the falls where you get on the Maid of the Mist. I wish I had some reference for these boulders, they were huge, easily the size of my house or bigger. The Falls undercuts the top layer of rock due to a softer layer underneath and these boulders eventually break off and settle at the base. If left unattended, the falls would eventually become a gradually declining river.

Our kids wouldn't help me out and stay put for the pic, so it is what it is.

Okay. I'm running out of time here. We have rain forecasted till the end of the month. So, stopped on my way home at one of the spots I'd been trying to get. I had really wanted to get this one in the a.m., but can't seem to get out the door early enough each morning.

I've had various ideas this month to try and just keep not timing them right. Being from the "granite state" and having all these old rock walls you'd think I would have had plenty of choices.

Well, it is voting time, so I guess I will kick it off this time. Some great images this month, but three really grab me - mtnman's beach rock and bluenose's Churchillian profile are outstanding compositions, but the simplicity of jalpee's stack of "dem smooth flat round river rocks" (apologies to Brother Dave Gardner, the Cajun storyteller) really registers with me, so I will vote for that one.

Well, I stopped by briefly just to remind every one it's time to vote - but it looks like Penolta & Rodney beat me to it! There's a great assortment of amazing photos - don't forget to vote!! (By the way, not sure of the rules - am I allowed to vote??)

I like Jelpees rock pebble pile on timber. Variety of textures and colours. Technically a very good shot as well. However, my vote goes to Cameanee for her creative black and white photo.
Cheers to all
