Hi Ryan, I like the shadows that show the structure of the stone and the shadows on the stone from the twigs.

Thanks Marilyn and Carsten! There are many places around where large rocky outcrops stick up out of the ground. This one is interesting to me because the rocks are so flat and thin, and it seems like there's only dirt beneath them.

Nice structures! Ryan, what do you mean by "emmenegger" near some of your photos? It's a very well known family name here in the Emmental, it means "mountain corner above the Emme" the river which gives the Emmental its name.

Thanks May! If you zoom in on the map one click, you can see the whole wooded area is called Emmenegger Nature Park. I knew it was a German (Swiss-German) name, but I didn't know the meaning of the name. Fascinating to know, thank you!

You can read here or here if you like, the land was donated by Russell E. Emmenegger in 1975. Perhaps he was a great-grandson (or a very old grandson) of the Frank Emmenegger who immigrated to St. Louis in 1851.

Greetings, Ryan
