“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
― L.M. Montgomery [Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables]
Thunder Rocks, Allegany State Park, New York, U.S.A.
An Iroquois legend describes a struggle among the guardian spirits of rocks to determine which one could throw the biggest rock to the top of this mountain. A nearby Iroquois tribe, after hearing the thunderous noises resulting from the contest, set out for the mountaintop where they discovered these rocks, which they named “Thunder Rocks”
I could tell you how they were formed scientifically, but isn’t the photo and the legend much more ‘scope for the imagination’ ?
Do you have a photo of somewhere that is a place of legend? A photo of a place that makes you wonder “What happened here?” or A photo that takes your imagination into flight like a faerie ?
I’d love to see what inspires your ponderings. Please pingback this post so I can see.
