A Thanksgiving Turkey?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 5 October 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Perhaps this photo should have been a candidate for Silly Tuesday?

Looks like a Thanksgiving turkey in need of some fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, fresh herbs and garnishments to surround it. I must have been hungry when I spotted this natural creation in the Valley of Fire state park.

Photo captured June 20, 2011.

That turkey has been sun cooked to the point of needing gravy in a big way. Excellent shot.
