As always, I enjoy the minimalist statements you find within complex surroundings. I don't think these Pillars were ever treated with more respect.

Many thanks, blai and Hank, for your fine comments. I guess it's simply in my nature to seek order in complexity.

Wonderful composition and lighting in this, Marilyn. It is so clear that in the full-size image I see numerous other 'detail' shots within. Truly some remarkable travels you have had! Best, alicia

Thanks for your visit and lovely comments, Alicia. Yes, this trip was an especially remarkable experience, and I had to control myself to keep from bringing home even more photos than I did! I'm so glad you're enjoying these.

Nature abhors a vacuum ... We've been home less than a month and already we've made a tentative decision about our next big trip. It's not until autumn, though don't expect us just to sit around at home until then! Greetings, Marilyn
