Neil you are right;

"there is something to see almost anywhere you go and often it's not that hard to find it; making images from it is another thing of course but just the broadening of one's experiences is all it needs."

I did have difficulty editing w that harsh sun at the high elevation and dark shadows. Did try using different filters. Still have a way to progress.
I posted most every shot I had. But there will be other times and other places. Thinking about many of them.

Harald, thank you
Fred , thank you

Yes, thinking if you guys, Neil, Harald, Fred could have come along. We would rent a 4X4 Jeep or one of those big trucks and off we go on some dirt road 🤠____Yahoo!
all the Best

There is one more photo I wanted to add. The 1st one is the last photo in the album, taken on my way to Oakman. The one below is from the same vantage point on the way back. If one pays attention to the horizon in both, in that time span a substantial fire has developed






The landscape photos in the beginning of the album are taken on my way to Oakman, up the curves, photographing east
The landscape photos at the end of the album are on my way back photographing west.
I was impressed w those views, so much so I didn't realize the curves driving.
Have no idea what those crosses are about

Hi Joseph,

That last image with the fire in the background; perfect weather conditions and many a smoke stack engineer would be mighty proud of the dispersion characteristics of that plume! Emission in one County; deposits in another!

BTW - the cross (if anything like the UK) probably signifies either a location where someone had a fatal accident (perhaps - possibly looking at the curves?), or that it was a favourite resting place to take the view and solitude in, hence the bench? Every country seems to have their own, rather idiosyncratic ways of remembering loved ones along the sides of roads for whatever reasons. BTW - like the idea of the rented truck.....

Thanks again and keep up the great travelling!

Stay safe and best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

Yes Neil, that plume was quite hard to comprehend, the whole trip was.

The cross thing was baffling because here in the US it is a Mexican custom to do the crosses like that at accident death sites. I mentioned that to a fellow next to me and he said he was down there w the crosses and they were in English, and really it looked more like a UfO site than anything and what was that bench? Then I left.

One of the magics of photography is it takes you back and helps you appreciate what you saw even more.
I had never expected those stunning views to the west

Yes a truck trip out there would be great. Can you see us w cameras in hand
All the Best___Joe
