Luminous Boulders and Shrubs

Luminous Boulders and Shrubs. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog for the past few days, as I’ve taken a bit of a break from writing and social media. After a few days of rain and strong winds, the skies cleared out for the best of winter weather. Cool enough to be able to enjoy the sunshine, and warm enough to want no more than T-shirts while climbing. So I took advantage of the weather and was out climbing every day.

Well, today I’m taking a bit of a breather from that, so I’m starting the day by sharing a photo from late summer this year. I took this during a walk at Il-Majjistral late in the day. There’s a stretch of cliffs where the rock feels rather crumbly, and sure enough just below the cliffs is a long boulder-field. Makes one wonder just how long ago (or how fresh) the tumbled-down bits were displaced. In this case probably quite a while. Enough for the cliff face to be weathered and for a few shrubs to grow straight, from the crevices on the rock face.
