With homage to the great black and white photographers of days past we offer this easier to identify image from the American West. Can you guess where we are?
It is a cold morning and we have just hiked about a mile on a dirt path through a sparse forest with one tree totally mangled by a bear. (Yes, we stopped to survey our surroundings when we saw it.) A light snow accompanied us as we walked and a clear sky greeted us as we came to the canyon's edge. And then the sky darkened as storms rolled in from the west.
If this has you stumped, did you guess where we were in the last posting? If you are a PC user you may recognize this image from their screen savers. But where is it?
This morning image is from Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. Photographers flock here in the early mornings to catch the sunrise and the soft colors that follow in what photographers call the golden hour. Here's another view of the same arch a little later in the morning from another vantage point. I would not recommend the hiking path she chose.
