A Crack in the Armor
View in "Orig" for better effect and detail.

As late afternoon wore on, so too did dark clouds grow, diluting the amazing under-the-sun colors of the area. But at last the sunlight broke through a drak-gray keyhole again, and I saw the upper reaches of the peak in all their glory.

This is from a short distance below the summit of the eastern, and higher, of the White Domes. The sandstone ramps lead straight up-- the difficulties are already below and behind-- to the red area at the top, and from there the summit itself is a few yards away.

I don't care what they're of; I just like to see in-focus shots that have a little more purpose than "Look at me!"

This sandstone is in very sharp focus, and its purpose is obvious. It turns back into sand, and has the tendency to get blown around by a very strong wind. Interaction is the key !!

Without interaction and the laws of physics,
nothing would happen! ! : )
