    Default trippy rock

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Cool pic.

    Then Earth-shaker Poseidon answered him:
    "I'd have done it at once, dark-clouded one, as you say,
    but I always hold in awe your temper and avoid it.
    Now in turn I want to wreck a gorgeous ship
    of Phaeacians returning from a convey on the misty sea,
    so they're stopped and desist from the convoy
    of men, and to wrap a great mountain around their city."

    Cloud-gatherer Zeus said to him in reply:
    "Hmmm. To my mind, this way seems to be best.
    When all the people are looking from the city at the ship
    driving on, when she's near land, turn her into a stone
    that resembles a swift ship, so each and every man may look
    in wonder...

    Then after Earth-shaker Poseidon heard this,
    he made his way to Scheria, where the Phaeacians are born,
    and waited there. The seafaring ship came very near,
    quickly following. Earth-shaker came near her,
    turned her into stone, and rooted her below
    with a thrust of the flat of his hand.
    The Odyssey, Book 13, Homer

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...

    Ship Rock, off of Santa Catalina's Isthmus Harbor, looks like a full rigged ship from a mile or so in the distance. The "One Mile Rule".




    That thing in the OP is built to the 50 foot rule.

    Pretty KOOL!
