Fossils ~ Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Macro


One of our favourite summer activities is walking the beach at Rock Point Provincial Park to look for sea-glass, pretty rocks and fossils. It’s amazing to think these little stones are tiny imprints of life from millions of years ago. We’re standing were many people and creatures stood over millions of years. What did they see?20160723_134822

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”  ~ John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in

Exposed fossils of a coral reef dating back to over 350 million years embedded in limestone shelf along the beach.
