Wordless Wednesday – Rocks or Boulders?

When does a rock become a boulder?

A question I asked myself while walking on Praa Sands Beach.

Or is it the other way around? A boulder becomes a rock, stone, pebble or cobble?

Or is a rock the largest of all, becomes a boulder which become stones then eventually sand?

According to Wikipedia…

In geology, a boulder is a rock fragment with size greater than 256 millimetres (10.1 in) in diameter. Smaller pieces are called cobbles and pebbles. While a boulder may be small enough to move or roll manually, others are extremely massive. In common usage, a boulder is too large for a person to move. Smaller boulders are usually just called rocks (American English) or stones (In British English a rock is larger than a boulder). You can read more Here.

According to me…

What I see is the wonder of nature causing erosion on these beauties, therefore creating such wonderful shapes 😊

A lot of words for Wordless Wednesday I know, but hey I can never be quiet when it comes to the wonders of our planet 🌏

What do you see and wonder when out walking?
