“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” J.R.R.Tolkien
San Juan, Argentina, nestles in a fertile valley flanked by arid mountains. Croplands and vineyards (green) abut the metropolitan area on the San Juan River. The white "teardrop" (lower left) is an ancient lakebed called Barreal Blanco. It is one of the best places in the world for carrovelismo, or landsailing, thanks to the steady winds that sweep across this flat, unobstructed expanse of hard-packed sediment.
Buddha tree. The trunk of a bodhi tree or peepal tree in Cairns Australia. This is the type of tree under which the Buddha sat (for 49 days!) till he received enlightenment. I am not a Buddhist, but I thought that Buddhists may like a photo of a bodhi tree. The botanical name is appropriate: Ficus religiosa. For those who appreciate the wonders of nature, you may enjoy visiting the page “Divine designs God’s creation” on my site Tracts4Free.wordpress.com which has photos of all sorts of wonderful things in nature.
I met this gentleman, who has been photographing Yosemite for the past 30 years, as I was about to leave the park. I could spend hours talking to him about photography, he explained to me how he uses the large format film camera, told me stories about old times and more. The work that he puts into his photos is amazing.
I relished the opportunity to explore Sedona’s towering cliffs and vistas, being dwarfed by nature’s immense footsteps formed over the course of billions of years. The sense of human significance vanishes while in the presence of the sedentary titans.
