Nice shots of Mesa Verde and area! To really bring this story to life (or maybe to death), now pick up Craig Child's House of Rain!

Since I'm a bit trapped in Santa Fe (daily radiation therapy), I decided that I could at least make it to the plaza with the camera. While I'm not that big on HDR, I decided to treat this one, at least a little bit.

Ah, there's a problem. When I'm in the MG, no photos. And when it's just sitting there without driver, well, it just looks so lonely! (Maybe I can hoodwink my wife into sitting in the driver's seat for a minute.)

Ah, now, just wait one minute here! That MG has antique vehicle plates. And if my MG had antique plates, why, that would mean that I'm a geezer, too. It just ain't right!

A visit to the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary yielded a couple of usable shots. (We did the normal tour, so always behind a very high chain-link fence.)

Such a beautiful place! And yet my heart mourns for the Colorado. What should be brown water, swollen and angry from the spring melt-off in the Rockies, is a tamed blue-green mess, no longer able to continue with its million-year march to canyon building.

Oh, yes, I know the road very well! First time I took it was in 1968. Back then, it was a gravel road, and we drove it in the middle of a dark night, canyon not visible. And I spun out on one of the curves. Didn't make a thing of it -- until I drove the other direction the next day to go over to Gunnison and just about fainted when I saw the drop-off.

Crawford is a pretty neat little town. I knew about Cocker being there. My parents' place was between Crawford and Paonia, closer to the Paonia end.

The Black Canyon is one magnificent hole in the ground. I used to drive past the back side of it a lot on the way to my parents' ranch. (Hwy 92 starts at Blue Mesa dam and heads past part of the canyon and on to Crawford.)

Thanks for sharing!

Neat place! That's the Little Colorado, flowing from eastern AZ into the Colorado in the upper portion of the Grand Canyon.

Little Colorado River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Just a little curious info:

The generalization about tributaries flowing into major rivers is that they flow in at an angle with its narrow side upstream of the major river. (At best, you'd see one flowing in at a 90 degree angle, but even that's rare.)

However, the Little Colorado flows into the Colorado "backwards," so to speak: The narrow angle is downstream of the major. This has been taken as evidence that the Colorado River originally flowed in the opposite direction.

Neat shot!

The first thing I noticed, though, was the title and the leaves. Colorado River. Something like palm trees? Ah, then I noticed the location: Arizona. That's why! I tend to forget that the Colorado flows through low country, too.

Maria and I dropped by the annual shovel races on the mountain while on our daily walk. The adult participants -- well, those that made it all the way down the course -- were doing over 60 miles per hour. A few shots:

Road runners are pretty neat. A couple of days ago, somebody posted a good shot of one on Flickr. What was interesting in the shot was that the bird was running across open ground (no grass or other vegetation), so you could see the legs and feet well. The lighting was also bright, so shadows were easily detectable. It thus became clear in the photo that neither of the bird's two feet were touching the ground. Quite a run!

Landscape HDR: River in the morning
Posted By Lynn

I tend to agree. HDRs are often pretty darned interesting when they're not overblown (which this one isn't). But then there's still the difference between the intrinsic eye-catchingness of HDR and the criteria that go into just plain good photographs, criteria that we often lump together under the catch-term "composition." This picture, then, does a wonderful job on the HDR end. (And I should point out that I need to work on this end, too!) But as CWyatt points out (I think), it still needs good composition.

Really a nice shot! I took a similar one many (many!) years ago during the winter along the Rhine: Foggy day, two ghostly trees bracketing the shot. Dang, I wish I had all those old photographs now. Anyway, yours is really neat. (And I spotted the cyclist right away.)

Yes, it is a great place! I spent five days at the park two weeks ago (plus a couple of visits to the nearby Buckhorn for green chili cheeseburgers). My pics are not ready yet, but it was pretty interesting even to watch the blue-blooded birders with their humongous lenses! At first, it was lens envy, but then it quickly dawned on me that birding is among the very few uses of such beasts. And talking to some of the volunteers at the park, I realized that while working there would be really fun (three to four month commitment during the winter), my inability to name a hundred species of birds at Bosque would be a hinderance to acceptance in the community.
