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???

Re: Maybe...

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!

Amazing!

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.

Re: Amazing!

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.

Re: yellow

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

Re: yellow

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

Re: yellow

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.'

Re: Great Capture

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. : ))
