Sandstone

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Photo captured in Red Rock Canyon on June 19, 2011. I noticed how the panoramic shot from yesterday's post took away the textures seen in this sandstone, so here's a single shot.

This is so great - like the landscape is smiling at me! Thank you so much for presenting this beauitiful area to those who have not seen it. There is so much beauty all over this country and in the west. Not that they don't deserve it, but I feel oftentimes we dwell on the "biggies" (Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, etcetc ) and we forget that there are ak=ll sorts of locations of beauty, mystery, and zenful magnificence that may not be as well known. We should try to enjoy them before some politician decides to sell it off to oil or industry!

I guess it is Calico Hills area which is very picturesque and you did excellent job to express magnificence of this mountains. Did you hike a litlle bit? There is nice trail to Turtle Head but in general the whole Red Rock Canyon is worth to explore.
