I find patterns in nature fascinating. “Ordo Saxae” is Latin for a row of rocks. As is always the case, there is something lost in translation – not only is it a row, but there is an order (ordo) about the perfect arrangement of the outcropping. These particular rocks reach out across Carmel Bay towards Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. The linear quality of the jagged rocks is offset by the jumbled ones in the foreground, but my eye keeps going back to the organic ordo ab chao of the rocks that stretch out towards Point Lobos in the distance.
