After the rocks of the Aruba coast, those of the interior of the island with this view of the huge boulders of Casibari.
Impressive in size and blunt surface. A scattered heap between the stems of cacti.

Bonjour Jean ,
J'aime beaucoup ce genre de paysage qui mêle harmonieusement rochers et végétation .

WOW that are impresive boulders Jean.
Beautiful, sharp and colorfull image!

Kind regards

Bonjour, cher Jean,
Voilà qui n'est guère courant de voir ce monceau de roches en pleine nature.
Grâce à tes prises de vue, j'apprends un peu plus chaque jour !

Bonjour Jean,

The soil must be poor because the succulent cacti plants are flourishing and no rainforest or red basaltic soil (which does tend to be fertile) is in sight. The huge granite boulders are unusual. Tfs!

Hello Jean,
A subject well suited adapted to the panoramic format. The beige toned rocks stand out very nicely against their green surroundings. Very good rendering of the textural detail.

Bonjour Jean,

Les cactus cadrent bien les roches. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des grosses roches. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Bonjour Jean,

Le titre m'a bien fait sourire. La description parfaite qui veut tout dire et rien à la fois. Je comprends l'intérêt de cette composition très graphique.

Impressive rocks and stones, very nice photo showing the coexistence of animated and inanimate nature, very well captured
regards Ryszard

Hello dear Jean Saint Martin and have a nice tie
and a happy Sunday
impressive capture in size and blunt surface
the huge granite boulders are unsual

Bonsoir Jean,
Je soupçonne que ces rochers sont énormes. Votre note le dit aussi.
Ce n'est pas si clair dans la photo. On voit quelques arbres et des pièces d'un chemin à travers la campagne. Mais c'est un peu dommage qu'il n'y a pas de gens pour donner une idée des dimensions.
Probablement un endroit pas bondé ce qui bien sûr est très agréable.
Probablement ces cactus sont également très élevés.
Étrange de trouver d'énormes rochers dans ce paysage.
Amicalement, Paul

Avec le forme de ces cactus très fin quelle vue sur ce rochers fendu quelle forme de la roche et la couleur le lissage sur la partie élcatée superbe.
Bravo et belle journée

Bonjour Jean
The huge yellow boulders in this green landscape gives a fascinating composition. The vertical stems of the cacti are an important element in the image.
Beautiful picture
Have a good week. Groet Rob

Salut Jean
Mystère sur l'origine de ces blocs érodés par le vent, mais cela doit dater
Une composition intéressante

I can see some rocks were probably polished in-naturally, Jean, maybe a men made work?
Anyway, the green cactus plants given contrast and different texture and mingling wonderfully.

Bonjour Jean,
fantastic composition which lovely contrasts the oval rocks and the sharp rods of cacti.
There is so much beauty in this landscape, may be it is attractive for me because it is simply different from landscapes I am used to?
Very well seen and captured!!!

Hello Jean,
They look like huge mushrooms, they sure are interesting formations.

the landscape remind me the dry areas of north-eastern Brazil. nice view with the bolders and the cacti mixed. TFS.



Ciao Jean
la natura è molto diversa da quella che conosco, rocce e piante formano un paesaggio incredibile.
Eccellente foto, presa da un ottimo punto di vista.
