Granite. La Sierra de La Cabrera
Granite areas allow for terrific walking conditions due to the friction it gives. You can hop from rock to rock without fear that you might slide of!
In other words, this is my ideal walking country!
In the background, Penelara, the highest peak in the Sierra de Guadarrama.

Larry!! Again you are my first invitee to this shot, :o)
Many thanks.
Yes. I would find it a bit tricky to re-follow my old walks of even a few years ago! But I resurrected my old stuff and post it and am reasonably happy with the results!

Very classic weathering of granite in an arid environment. We have outcrops a lot like that around here!

I'm sure you do. Granite is good friction-wise. But early morming wot a bot of ie/friet underfott then even Vibram says - you're on you own here, matey
WOW. Sorry. A combination of tiredness, Heat stroke, general insensibility, etc .. and I would try to recreate my comments - but impossible. it is 2 am and the temperature is way above 85f.

Andy Rodker has replied to Nick Weall
I still can't work out what I was trying to express last night!!! Combination of heat stroke and a rather nice cool Albarino! Even hotter today (44c - maybe 108f??). Perhaps I should refrain from applying sweaty fingertip to keyboard tonight!

Beautiful work! But, despite your reassuring workds, I would be terrified to walk here, as I would in many of your other excellent shots :)

Andy Rodker has replied to micritter
Well, the walking is done on flat paths!!! Only the skill of the photographer suggests that it is necessary to become a rock athlete!

Ha! I just don't think I'd walk under that rock!! Very dramatic beautiful photo. (and so glad you are back on ipernity!)

found and enjoyed in 'naturally occurring collages' - thanks for adding.

The rock is as safe as anything!
Thank you Laura.
I'm back but in the 6 hours I was off, no comments were received (I checked with someone who had sent one) - lost in the ether!
Unsure what I should post in your group, but the varied photos there suggest that interpretation belongs to the category of 'Broad Church!'
Best wishes,
Andy

Comme toi j'adore sauter monter ou sauter d'un rocher de granit à l'autre, comme un chamois. La photo présente un beau contraste et une lumière unique ; ainsi qu'une jolie perspective sur la Sierra.
