(Day 253) Rugged beauty

Friday Sept. 10, 2010

I haven't checked any sources (yet) regarding the formation of Rhodes, but from looking at the seashore rocks, and the mountains and hills, I would venture that Rhodes came about as a result of volcanic activity. Certainly by the seashore in many cases there appears to be a lot of lava, and many of the hills seem to be made of hardened mud, filled with fist-sized stones.

Tonight we made a point of being near Charaki with its beautiful semi-circular beach, to catch the sunset on the rugged rocks at the outer ends of the beach.

And you did a fabulous job of capturing the beach too. It was such warmth. Lovely shot Rick!

@Katherine - thank you; I think it was relatively easy to capture the beauty on Rhodes - it was all around us.
