Weekly Photo Challenge: TIME

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is TIME.

What could be more illustrative of time than a stone, millions of years old, encrusted with lichen, and showing signs of slowly splitting? How many more millions of years before time grinds this stone to dust?

    Wonderful take on the prompt!


  8. Rocks sure are old, and tell a story by their wear. The lichen adds to the story.


  9. Wow yes that’s a good idea for time! I wonder what the rock looked like when it was first formed?
