    • Thanks, Jack…another one of those views just waiting to be captured.

  2. 20 years ago I would have gotten my climbing gear and headed out. Beautiful!

    • It’s very inviting, isn’t it, Laura? 🙂

  3. Beautiful!

    • Very much so, Angie. 🙂

  4. Whoa!!! That looks too much like my falling rock episode from last Saturday… 😉 That was a shocker and made me realize them rocks don’t always stay where they’re supposed to.

    • While those guys look like they’ve been there for a few million years, I guess we never know when they’re going to come tumbling down, do we? Kinda beautiful freaky all at once. 😉

      • It’s them trees growing in all them crevices that have me thinking they’ll be tumbling down someday. Perhaps not this week, or this year, but someday. But it’s a beautiful image anyway. Just a bit unsettling because of that boulder I encountered.

        • Yes, someday. I have some photos from up at Bells Canyon upper reservoir that have massive trees with huge roots lying across and driving into the rocks….and the trees have long since died and turned into silvery-gray skeletons of used-to-be…and the rocks are still intact…but yes, someday, Gunta…and fortunately, in more than one sense, there will be no highways beneath these trees, waaay up in the mountains. 🙂

  5. Wow! Have you taken up rock climbing?

    August 23, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    • Oh no…this is from the trail heading up to the reservoir…. I’ve not seen folks climbing the rocks this far up the canyon, but there are other places quite a bit lower where where they do. I’m good with the ground under my feet. 😉

    Great shot, but am wondering if you’re rock climbing these days (like the commenter above).

    August 23, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    • Not me, Vicky…found this view just looking around…and up…from the trail.

  7. Nice quiet colors and rough textures everywhere – it’s all of a piece, isn’t it?

    August 24, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    • Seems to have quite a bit of it…..

    I’ve really missed your wonderful open views!

    August 24, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    • How nice that you’re back. 🙂

      August 29, 2013 at 8:09 am

  9. Oh my goodness! What a dramatic and startling image! It may very well be your best yet. What detail and contrasts. And perspective. I am astounded by the effect here. Have I raved enough to convince you that I think this image is just wonderful? It is. 🙂

    August 24, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    • You’re precious, George….thank you. 🙂

      August 29, 2013 at 8:10 am

  10. Wonderful shot of the crag!

    August 26, 2013 at 12:35 am

  11. Fabulous image Scott!

    August 26, 2013 at 1:48 am

    • I love those rocks, Adrian…inviting the camera shot. 🙂

      August 29, 2013 at 8:11 am

  12. You found the perfect light for this shot. It always amazes me how trees seem to be able to find sustenance for growth in the most unlikely situations.

    August 26, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    • These canyons are full of examples of life finding a way, Andy…so many trees growing out of rocks…some even out of the sides of sheer cliffs…just amazing.

      August 29, 2013 at 8:12 am

  13. Beautiful photograph.

    August 27, 2013 at 3:27 am

    • Thank you, Shimon.

      August 29, 2013 at 8:12 am

  14. Unusual and fascinating photo. I hope that those terrible fires are nowhere near you, Scott.

    August 28, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    • Thank you, John…and no, those fires are actually quite a distance from me and our Wasatch Mountains. Compared to the last couple of years, we’ve managed to have relatively few fires this season……

      August 29, 2013 at 8:14 am

      • It saddens us all to see those forests and wildlife threatened so badly, let alone people’s homes…..

        August 29, 2013 at 10:28 am

        • It’s heartbreaking…

          August 29, 2013 at 2:21 pm

Thank you for would be great to hear from you....
