Shapes of Things..

"Shapes of things before my eyes,
Just teach me to despise;
Will time make men more wise?
Here, within my lonely frame,
My eyes just hurt my brain.
But will it seem the same ...?

Looking out across "cypress-filled" Mormon Canyon, from the trail leading up to the top of Brins Mesa.

The SW shoulder of Mount Wilson (left), The Sail (center), and The Fin (on the right) take in the diminishing rays of a hot summer's day.

The best views seem to be just before sundown. Hurry sundown!

Re: Great

Thanks, Ejnar ..

Did we ever determine the true meaning of
'alpenglow?'

How about "sandstone-glow?" Oxidized silica
and quartz seem to catch sunlight rather
magnificently.

Re: Beautiful!

Thanks, Sir Eric!

You're not a BIG fan of Eric Carmen, are you?

Please click..

(Just curious - every time I read your comments, I feel like I'm listening to a
beautiful piano concerto).

Re: Beautiful!

Hmmm...don't know...I'm a fan of Eric (who wouldn't be a fan of himself - haha!) and I'm a fan of Carmen ( and Don José as well), but when you put the two together...
Actually, I'm just kidding!
I'm certainly a fan of your photos, Sir Larry Esq.! (in Austria, the "title-waltz" is still being danced with all the fervor you can imagine - people are so thin-skinned about their "Herr Professor", "Herr Doktor", "Herr Hofrat", "Herr Kommerzialrat" etc. The last two titles don't even have any function at all - they're simply relics from the imperial period!)
Cheers,
Eric

Re: Beautiful!

The true beauty of Nature is hard to capture.

A lot of people are under the impression that Nature is not true art, but human nature cannot be separated from the music of ALL nature.

Therefore, everything must be in harmony.

Thanks for enjoying my "harmonious" sandstone
photographs from the "red zone" of Arizona.
