Hoodoos

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 4 September 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Hoodoos are eroded pillars of soft sandstone rock, topped with a resiliant cap . The cap protects the softer rock underneath from eroding as quickly as the surrounding rock. Once the cap deteriorates, the pillar is more vulnerable to the elements and subjected to rapid deterioration.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.
Benjamin Franklin


I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.
