I found what looks like an x with writing underneath it. My photo software keeps locking up so I could not post a close up pic but the rock in question is almost half way down on the very right side. long and thin, It looks like a little shovel.
Anyway, you have to zoom in on the rock to see it.
Can someone with good photo software find the spot in question and help identify what it is?

It looks like IX , the number nine. strange that , as there was a 19 or possibly a 9 on another rock

Couple of observations:

Photos Are Not The Same As Eyeballs.

If You Zoom In On Any Digital Picture, You Will Find Weird Markings (digital artifacts) that suggest something is there when it isn't. Using Photoshop, I can zoom in on things on my desk (including the bare surface) and find all sorts of oddball things that really aren't there.

You Need To Know What Kind Of Rock It Is Before Calling It An Anomaly. T

Rocks wear in different patterns and fracture in different ways. Basalt is different from obsidian and both are different from sandstone, shale, gneiss, and so on and so forth.

It's a cool find.
What if it is XI -11? (upside down)

I think these are unusual also.

I didn't magnify so you could play with it your self.
The tiny rock in the middle above the other two looks so flat...

Something else, on the left almost in the middle there is something that looks like a telephone buried in the sand. anyone else see it?
*edit* wrong location, had to change it

Not to rain on anyones parade but i think we need another shot of those rocks say at another angle or color photo. to many shadows its like looking at clouds and saying thats a firetruck.

It's been saying that for atleast the last 2 hours

Here is another interesting "thing" in the center. Oval shape.
Maybe a rock, but worth the look.

I can't find that one.

If you squint..you can almost make out a "face" on this one


Course my drawing on it suggests a face..
