Delicate Arch Revisited

I recently came across this image and edited it NIK editing tools and Adobe Photoshop.

If you have never been to Arches National Park, you should think about making the trip. The spectacular views are primarily sandstone and eroding away. The Park Service thought about covering some of the formations with a clear polyethylene chemical but abandoned the idea as environmentally unsafe.

Although there are signs everywhere telling people to not climb on the rocks and stay on the paths, there are a lot of idiots that ignore this and are helping the natural process of erosion with the death of a million touches. Park Rangers fear that Delicate Arch may not last too much longer and although there are many other spectacular views in the park, the collapse of Delicate Arch will be a sad event so see it soon.

Bavaria–The Alps

I live on a mountain. I have also traveled a lot through different mountain ranges in Colorado,California,Utah,New Mexico,Maine,Canada,Pennsylvania,North Carolina etc. It is amazing how different mountains can look and yet so similar at the same time. A mountain in Pennyslvania and one in Tennessee can look very much alike but you wouldn’t confuse them with the Rockies.

These are the Alps in Germany near the Austrian border. I don’t think these look like any other mountains I have seen but can’t say what it is that makes them look so different. I have never been to the Canadian but this doesn’t look like Colorado to me.

Just Another Road

Yesterday I posted an image of Canyonlands NP in Utah. You don’t have to go into a park to see the natural beauty of the land. This is on a state highway headed towards Bryce Canyon National Park not far from Panguitch Utah.

Canyonlands

Out of all the states I have visited, Utah was the biggest surprise. I don’t know what I expected but it seemed that every turn of the road brought new vistas that were prettier than the last. This image was a throw away image. I never looked at it twice until today. I had such wonderful shots of the hoodoos of Bryce canyon and the delicate sculptures of Arches National Park. I never looked at this one as being special but now decades later I think it is quite a nice image. This is Canyonlands National Park near Moab Utah.
