The wave-like form of this eroded rock face looks much like a cresting Tsunami before it crashes onto the land.

Specific Feedback

Whatever you wish, positive or otherwise.

A very cool find, Bob, and well photographed. It certainly does look like a massive wave coming in.

Thank you @Dennis_Plank for your kind remarks. One would not want that crashing down on oneself. I chose to process in B&W because the stone is orange.

Bob, this is an effective interpretation beyond the literal. The imagination is free to engage. The monochrome edit helps to suspend disbelief. Good work here!

Thank you @Alfredo_Mora for your kind remarks. I’m unsure that midwestern residents will see it. One cannot please everyone. just don’t want to antagonize them.
