Studio 365: Day 130

In follow up to yesterday’s Day 129, and staying in a Bryce Canyon frame of mind, I thought I would add an addendum to our unforgettable visit there just three weeks ago. The first trail we experienced was at the southern end of the Park, and is known as The Bristlecone Loop Trail. It is a 1.1 mile round trip and leads to views of The Pink Cliffs, and a 100 mile vista taking in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The Bristlecone in the photo is over sixteen centuries old, a true force of nature.

I wanted to capture that moment when the spectacular panorama appeared and the view of the 2000 foot drop into the canyon below unfolded. It was simply breathtaking. The next day we went back and I made the following video to re-create that moment.

Let me know if I’ve succeeded.

Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother's Day

A very Canadian Mother’s Day image seen on our early morning walk this morning with this family of Canada Geese having their Mother’s Day brunch together. Once again it’s the “Early Bird” photography syndrome – literally – finding beauty in the early hours of the day.

In this week’s Photo Challenge Brie asks us “to share a force of nature from your corner of the world…It can be something as large as the Grand Canyon, or as small as the tiny seedling steadily breaking it’s way through the concrete in your driveway…” Well, although not in our driveway, even though we don’t have a driveway, I think these goslings are tiny enough, wouldn’t you agree.

Happy Mother’s Day
