Boulder of Fortune
It is a very fortunate boulder, one that soaks up
the sunshine on the last day of January. It is so lucky to have green lichen growing on it, as a small Pinyon pine casts a shadow just southeast of Payson, Arizona, in the "Granite Dells" area. Bouldering???

Surely that you can add my photo to your album!
Feel free to do It!
I have to "push some botton", or it's an action that you can do by yourself, I am not an expert in managing file on internet, and note that I am an engineer!

This photo truly brings out the spirit of nature. I love the way that the shadow, the lichen, and the natural color of the rock seem to create an eternal flame. It is very beautiful.

Thanks, Mark! In fact, I'm going out the
door right now to take some pictures of
this same area, called the 'Granite Dells'
area a few miles outside the town where
I live. All of the snow has melted, now!

The yellow on the stone looks good.

Thank you, wiktoria! Actually, I must admit
that the "editing manager" made it appear more
yellow than it really was.

Congratulations in climbing the High Tatra
of Poland! That's wonderful! I really like
your "elk photo" from Yellowstone. We have
some elk where I took a photo of this
boulder, but I haven't captured one on film
yet! Thanks for your kind word. -LARRY

Thank you, is this "yellow" some type of fungi?

Yes, it's a COMBINATION of the chlorophyl
from the photosynthetic green algae and the
fungi growing in unison.

Because this side of the boulder is 'south-facing,' it receives more hours of
sunlight to perpetuate the 'photosynthetic
process.'

Thanks - guess we share something in common?

The lighting was great, but I somehow managed
to cut off the "summit" of the boulder.

I tend to do that with my camera. The beauty
of digital photography is, you can continue
taking picture-upon-picture of the SAME
subject, until the battery quits. : ))
