This was on the first day of my most recent trip to Oklahoma. I missed my turn off, and wound up near a spot I'd always been wanting to visit, so I took advantage of some extra time, and my bumbling.
Yes, once you miss your turn it looks like you have to go for miles before you get anywhere else. :D Lucky you! I can see why you'd want to visit, it looks just awesome.
All this has done is put one major goad in me to have to go back, Nawitka. The scene I really want to get is a formation called The Mittens. I'm glad you made it by to leave your nice comment, though.
I love the perspective in this one...looks like the road goes on forever. This landscape is so different to what I see here.
Thank you very much, Laurel. This view sneaked up on me, and as soon as I saw it, I was thinking, "Wow! This looks exactly like Valley of the Gods!" Boy did I feel silly when I realized where I was. It's fun to see the different landscape offerings we all provide from our various vantage points.
"The Mittens" sounds awesome! I hope you will get there soon.
I hope so too, Nawitka. No guarantees, but it's definitely on the short list.
its less important what n1w photographs and more important that he has returned to pano. i like those mysterious rock formations in the background for what its worth! PS. nawitka is kicking me.
lol, nice transition from the last photo you'd uploaded previous to this one! You picked a great time to miss your turnoff. Great lighting with the sun and the moving squall!
This is a great relief to me, Larry. I can finally post the 10,429 images I have of various bits of lint and dust bunnies. Your generosity is exceeded only by your intellect. I was hoping I could get closer to those guys, too, Larry. And if you two don't behave yourselves, I'm going to drop you off at the next junction, and you can find your own way home.
kamalyn, you and Guy always catch me with your observations of the photo arrangements. I hadn't even thought about that, and thank you for mentioning it. It's funny, but I'm usually pretty careful about keeping track of my turn offs. I suppose some might say that subliminally, I wanted to miss that turn, to make the exploratory effort. Thank you for your visits, and always insightful comments.
Guess it is a good thing there was a storm coming in or you might still be there. What a wonderful thing to wander off into...subliminally, or not. Great to have you back posting!
I'd have been sorely tempted, JF. It was a very happy realization, to be sure. Thanks for the visit and the nice welcome back.
Very good image! LIKE!
Thank you very much, zanot10.
A very beautiful landscape. L6. Michael
Is this photo looking at Valley of the Gods or Monument Valley? Valley of the Gods is west of where you pinned this picture. Monument Valley is more west and some south of where this picture was pinned.
