A brighter shade of grey

I usually think of gritstone as being a moderately dull grey colour but the broken rocks around Millstone Quarry reminded me that it is actually a harder form of sandstone and, as such, has a rich range of colour.

Here, enhanced by the algae :)

    Amazing what you notice when (if) we take the time to stop, consciously look and actually see isn't it =D

  5. lovely colours! I just received a PPS with a series of rock pictures with matching insects!

  6. I think that the more we look at rocks and stones the more colours we see in them Helen.
