Don't Ask For Whom The Bell Tolls

Telephoto of Bell Rock from approximately 6 miles to the north.

You can see how the landform got its name.

After the ancestral Rocky Mountains were formed, the area which is now
Sedona rose as tidal flats from an ancient sea.

Sand was blown into the sea. As the sea receded, the accumulated layers
became the red-hued sandstone making up Bell Rock.

Re: Great Photo

Right on!

If you don't like the studio version of "For
Whom The Bell Tolls" by Metallica, don't click

Re: Great Photo ...

You'll also note that "Metallica" has two l's.

But that's cool; there's no worries here.

Re: ftw

In biker gangs, "ftw" has a fascinating meaning.

I'm not in a biker gang, so I guess "ftw" =
'for the win.' Thank you, man!

Great shot Larry, especially if taken through a telephoto lens. Nice job!

It tolls for Thee

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee
John Donne

Heavy stuff for a big chunk of rock

Re: It tolls for Thee


The road is long, with many a winding turn -

That leads us to who knows where -
Who knows where ???

... He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

(Thanks for the words of wisdom, Mister John!)

No place like home !

I can't find anything like that in my neck of the woods !

I guess that I'll have to migrate ! LOL !

Re: No place like home... !

Thank you 'suddendescent.'

Migration seems a viable option. But, I'm not
telling people migration is an essential part
of the human spirit.

My family "migrated" over here from Europe,
and now I'm stuck in this snake-invested
land, a PRISONER of my own device.

I dream of Mount Robson and the Columbia
Icefield on many nights ...

Don't ask for whom the bell tolls.

The bell tolls for thee.

Re: No place like home...... !

Hmmmm, let me see ...

"WTG?" That means way to go, right ?

Thank God for this urban dictionary I
carry 'round with me in my back pocket.

And, thanks for your support and inspiration!
