Rose on a Rock

rose on rock.blog

There were lots of rocks at Amerind, really big rocks, and I took pictures of many of them. Winnowing them down to the most interesting was a tough job, but here’s what I settled on. We all noticed that this one had what looked like (to me) a cross between a rose and an artichoke on it.

DH taught me a few new things in the use of Photoshop today. Now . . . remembering them . . . that will be the hard part. Must practice.

If you click, let it load, and then click again, it will get really big. There must have been extra pixels floating around out there and my camera somehow scooped them up!

    Very nice photography work!

    Back in the 1880’s this spot was a famous meeting place for those riding the outlaw trail. When someone said “meet you at Black Rose”, this was the spot. In time, it became known to those in law enforcement and more than one ambush took place at or on the nearby trail.

    You really stumbled across history with this one! Congratulations!

    To me it looks more like an artichoke!

    You’re a regular photographer there. You should take that up for a living. That’s a beautiful huge rock.

      Wouldn’t that be great? Many decades ago, I thought of that, but these days it’s just too easy to get good shots. Back then, I used to wind my own film onto rolls – now all we have to do is make sure the battery is charged! Well, that and remember to take the camera along! ;->

    Lovely photography. Those rocks are huge, probably ten times my height. I would love to sit at the top and gaze down at people passing. Thanks for sharing!

      We had the place to ourselves. Not much in the way of crowds. There was one other couple walking around while we were there. It was the end of the day, but that is when the light is best. Scrambling to the top of those slickery rocks would be a good trick. Do you have a good set of pitons?
