It’s fall, and there’s no better way to celebrate the season than to take a knife to a big, orange squash.
Since we’re all lovers of rocks, geology, and all things earth science here, I issue a challenge! Pick a pumpkin-appropriate, geology themed image, get out your carving knife and hack away.
When you’re done, light it up, take a snap shot and share it on your blog for all to admire. (If you don’t have a blog, you can tweet your images to me and I’ll display them with attribution in a future post on Uncovered Earth.)
As you can see, I’ve chosen a rock hammer as my subject. It was a small pumpkin, so I had to pick something simple and recognizable. You can get as creative and elaborate as you like. Consider a mountain landscape, a meandering river, or other tools of the trade (boots, hats, a clinometer?) The only limit is your imagination, and the brilliant canvas that is the pumpkin squash.
