Rock Photography Set XIII

This past weekend I had the honor and privilege of participating in the 53rd Annual Cayucos Gem & Mineral Show. While there are Sunday morning while the day was typically slow in starting at Sunday's are oft wont to do I had the time and opportunity to take some images for a thirteenth installment of my Rock Photography series. I prefer natural light in my photographs so I use artificial light sparingly which in some images might frustrate some but that is how I roll.

For a peak at last weekend's show please check out Day Three and from their link through to the other days of the show.
