Tom, I cannot say I have a special attachment to the arches, but pictures of arches and especially with water turn to be very interesting.


Vielen Dank Nelly

Kinder in dem Alter kann man oft in solchen Situationen sehen, man muß nur den Auslöser zum richtigen Zeitpunkt treffen :).



The fire was put out a little over two weeks before I took this picture. Just after the fire a major thunderstorm caused minor erosion that adds to the appearance of desolation.

Yes I did. This is really an ATV trail made by the people who run cattle here, but I hate the noise and smell of ATVs. It would probably be a better trail for hiking than bicycle as it is a bit toothy. However one goes it is a lovely isolated (rarely see anyone else) trail that ends at a permanent flowing spring (that often has watercress).

Sometimes it all comes together. The sky, the water, the refletion, the trees, and you get a great composition.

When I see a trail with three tracks, I immedialtely think "horses."

But of course that is not what drew me to this photo. What got my attention is the arch formed by the trees. Very unusual.

Hi AustinMN I didn't recognize you. We just last night finished the corn harvest in and around Taylor Tx. Today we are moving to High Bank Tx an area we were in earlier for the wheat. We will be doing only one farmer's corn there before we pack everything up and head up to the Dakotas for more wheat.
I am having a real problem with the orientation of my pictures. The other morning I loaded over 100 and 75 were either sideways one way or the other or upside down. I have done the photo editing that I have always done with Microsoft Office. How the finished product appears seems to be completely random. I have too little time one line these days to deal with this. After the harvest I will have thousands of pictures to load. I give them one shot. if they come out up side up I leave them, the rest I have to take the time to delete.

Thanks, hope you make it back to Colorado sometime.

Wonderful picture!
