    • Thank you, Chillbrook…the approach to the island is, for all intents and purposes, a rather sparse view…the stump was quite a visual treasure. I’m glad you enjoyed the series. 🙂

  2. Looks like the perfect place to just sit and contemplate nature. It’s easy to open your mind and climb out of it for awhile with such a great expanse before you.

    • It is a wonderful place to be, Allen…all we’d need is a comfrotable chair and a cooler of something nice to drink…and a fly-swatter…. 🙂

  4. I remember that cracked mud. You captured and featured it really well here. Quite the contrast from the stuff up in the hills, eh?

    • Thank you, Gunta, and yes, quite a contrast to the stuff up in my canyons and mountains. 🙂

  5. I love this. I love the contradiction of the water, yet the land that is so cracked due to lack of water, side by side.

    • Thank you, Leanne…I like those words, too, about the water being such a contradiction…very compelling.

  6. Great juxtaposition. The image is actually quite confusing but awesome at the same time.

    Looks so empty and peaceful. Somehow, places like this seem to have no sense of time within them.
    Is that a mirage by the way?

    • Hello again, Jacob…it certainly is empty and peaceful out there…and I agree with you, time seems to be nothing in this context. The background image is not a mirage; it is the reflection of Antelope Island as it appeared on that particular morning out on the Great Salt Lake.

  10. Ah, this is dramatic. What a lovely combination of tones and shapes and textures.

    • Thank you, George…I love that old stump. 🙂
