Tuesdays of Texture – Week 11, 2017
“It’s weird how I am constantly surprised by the passage of time when it’s literally the most predictable thing in the Universe.”
― Randall Munroe
Here is my entry for Del Monte Y Mar’s Tuesdays of Texture Challenge Week 11 of 2017.
Deliberately titled “Passage of Time”, this is a close up view of the famous Cabo San Lucas Arch, located at Land’s End, the natural boundary of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. It is the only finisterra (latin for “land’s end”) in the world. The iconic “Arch” is a natural passage between these two bodies of water and is composed of granite dated around 30 million years old, it is and has borne witness to the passage of time.
It’s also believed that the Baja California was at one time an island which joined the mainland as the rest of the peninsula rose from the seas to join up with it.
The wonderful smoothed textures of the cracks intrigued the geologist in me and prompted me to do some more reading on this wonderful location, previously unknown to me. I’ve attached an interesting article if you care to know more about this place.
