Sproat Lake Petroglyph's



Sproat Lake on Vancouver Island
is home to some pretty impressive
petroglyph's.
These ancient rock carvings fascinate me,
the minds and hands that created them
hold an almost mystical charm.
The petroglyph's I visited in
Nicaragua are also assumed
to represent sea creatures, some
more strange and exotic looking than the next.

The ancient's way of showing us
the animals and people
that inhabited their world
are slowing fading with the effects of time.
Fortunately, photography offers a more
permanent record of these carvings.

But nothing can replace seeing
them in their own environment
with the primordial cry of an eagle echoing
off the rocks.
